MongoDB Authentication and Roles: Creating Your First Personalized Role

MongoDB Authentication and Roles: Creating Your First Personalized Role

http://ift.tt/2rhl0Zi

MongoDB features a few authentication methods and built-in roles that offer great control of both who is connecting to the database and what they are allowed to do. However, some companies have their own security policies that are often not covered by default roles. This blog post explains not only how to create personalized roles, but also how to grant minimum access to a user.

Authentication Methods

SCRAM-SHA-1 and MONGODB-CR are challenge-response protocols. All the users and passwords are saved encrypted in the MongoDB instance. Challenge-response authentication methods are widely used on the internet in several server-client software. These authentication methods do not send passwords as plain text to the server when the client is starting an authentication. Each new session has a different hash/code, which stops people from getting the password when sniffing the network.
