The first section of this chapter, which discusses security, does not strictly relate to MySQL Cluster. That is, there is very little here that users experienced with Linux security will find new, and such users can either skim or skip this section and go straight to the "Managing MySQL Cluster" section, later in this chapter. However, many database administrators will suddenly find that they need to learn how to secure a cluster in MySQL Cluster, and this chapter will help them. It covers what you have to do to secure a cluster, and it does not expect any significant previous knowledge of Linux security.
This chapter covers Linux security in step-by-step detail; you should be able to transfer this information onto other platforms, if needed.
