Enterprise Encryption for MySQL Enterprise Edition now enables server

environment variables. These can be used to prevent clients from using
excessive CPU resources by passing very long key lengths to key-generation
operations. For more information, see Enterprise Encryption Usage and
Examples. (Bug #19687742)
