In 2016 Oracle added Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) feature to the MySQL server so users can encrypt data stored in their InnoDB tables. With this new functionality in hand database administrators are now able to encrypt data stored in their MySQL database servers to ensure privacy and prevent data breaches. Moreover, the functionality is available for free in the MySQL Community edition. However, both the Community and the Enterprise edition require purchase of a key management solution for managing the associated MySQL master encryption key. The cost of such a key management solution can run into tens of thousands of dollars – a small fortune for small to medium sized businesses. This has prevented many MySQL users from using the MySQL TDE functionality.
