    SCRAM authentication in PostgreSQL 10

    PostgreSQL's current authentication mechanisms are old and weak by today's standards. MD5, which is used for password-based authentication currently, is generally considered not secure anymore.

    PostgreSQL version 10 adds support for a new authentication method called SCRAM. SCRAM addresses the weaknesses of MD5, making password-based authentication secure again.

    In this presentation, I will explain how SCRAM works, the benefits it has over current authentication mechanisms, and explore some future enhancements that it will enable.
