Memory tables safer for session tables?
Posted by: Matt Bostock

I'm developing a PHP/MySQL customer support area, which requires users to login on a website.

Once they're logged in, I'm tracking the users' session info (ID, IP, user agent etc) in a MySQL table. Would a memory/heap table be more secure for this task compared to an InnoDB or MyISAM table? I'm guessing there's probably not a lot of difference.

Many thanks,
Matt :)
