This is part 3 of the blog “Understanding Security Features in PostgreSQL”, in which I will be discussing how to apply TLS in both PostgreSQL server and client using the principles we have learned in part 2 of the blog. In the end, I will also briefly talk about Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) and security vulnerability.
Here is the overview of the security topics that will be covered in all parts of the blog:
This is part 2 of the blog “Understanding Security Features in PostgreSQL”, in which I will be discussing TLS in greater details. I will begin by going over some of the most important security concepts around TLS before jumping into enabling TLS on PostgreSQL server. I believe it is crucial to have sufficient background information on TLS before tweaking the TLS settings in both client and server sides.
PostgreSQL is packed with several security features for a database administrator to utilize according to his or her organizational security needs. The word Security is a very broad concept and could refer to completely different procedures and methodology to achieve in different PostgreSQL components. This blog is divided into part 1, 2 and 3 and I will explain the word Security with regards to PostgreSQL version 12.1 and how it is practiced in different areas within the system.
It’s been exactly half a year since the last major release of the pgwatch2 Open Source PostgreSQL monitoring tool, and I’m glad to announce that another huge set of useful features and improvements have found their way into the pgwatch2 code repository!

One of the great things about PostgreSQL is its reliability: it is very stable and typically “just works.” However, there are certain things that can happen in the environment that PostgreSQL is deployed in that can affect its uptime, such as:
Python 2 has officially completed its life as of Jan 1st, 2020 and the Python 2.x branch will not be maintained anymore. You might be seeing repeated notices of deprecation in log files and terminals like:
As I get ready for the PgDay San Francisco event that is happening next Tue 21 January—a one-day, single-track Postgres community event at the awesome Swedish American Hall in SF—I’m reflecting a bit on how important the speakers are to developer events. Let’s face it, without speakers, there would be no conference.

The PostgreSQL Project is present with a booth at FOSDEM ever since 2007. Since 2008 we organize a Devroom, since 2013 we have our own PGDay on the Friday before FOSDEM. This year marks the 8th FOSDEM PGDay.
This blog post presents useful information about the PGDay, the booth and Devroom at FOSDEM.

FOSDEM PGDay is looking for volunteers! We rely on you to help us host and run a successful FOSDEM booth and devroom.
The areas covered by volunteers include, but are not limited to:
- room host (Devroom, Sunday)
- video host (Devroom, Sunday)
- door bouncer (Devroom, Sunday)
- booth volunteers (Saturday, Sunday)
Room volunteers have the advantage that they have a guaranteed place in the devroom during their Sunday shift.
Quite often when visiting customers or doing trainings, I see that people are quite happy seeing and learning about some little time-saving PostgreSQL tricks, commands or SQL snippets on the screen and they usually ask to slow down and explain or just say “wow, didn’t know you could do that”.
For connection pooling in PostgreSQL, one of the best and most popular tools out there is PgBouncer. However, monitoring PgBouncer can be challenging due to its use of SHOW commands, which are only available via a special database connection as opposed to making its statistics available via a standard table or view.
