With reference to my post to the "PostgreSQL Password Cracker" on
2003-01-02, I've promised to write a security document for the project.
Here it is, Sunday night, and I can't sleep.  What better way to get there
than start this task...

My plan is to write this in very simple HTML.  I will post the draft
document on my website and post the URL here from time to time for
feedback. Please make suggestions for content.  So far, I will cover these

- .pgpass (see
- local connections
- remote connections (recommending SSL)
- pg_hba (only in passing, most of that is at
- running the postmaster as a specific user

That doesn't sound like much.  Surely you can think of something else to
add.  Should I post this to another list for their views?

OK, that's done it.  I'm ready for sleep now.
