Thanks for a lengthful comment....

But in any way, my users have to be able to connect to the database....so what's your most secure way to do that?

    But in any way, my users have to be able to connect to the database.
    Do they really connect to the database, or just to a cgi application which then connects to the db? It sounds as though you're only using a 'master' user/pass to have db access from cgi. Do your users have individual db accounts? Can the CGI perform it's duties for userX if it is logged in as userX ? In that case you would be mindful of the security of your CGI session, (where user/pass is being flung around) instead of being worried about your db master password being available to an intruder.

    Seriously, if someone invades the box, this is all academic - all bets on security are off. Please describe your process more explicitly, post some code and more people may be able to assist you.
