Recently, Jeff Darcy has brought up the discussion of NoSQL databases security. A recent post on Couchio blog is covering in detail the CouchDB security aspects like authentication and authorization, “admin party”, access control lists and roles, validation functions:
The CouchDB security model is based around the premise that Rebecca can control who can create documents of what form into which database inside CouchDB. It does not try to make CouchDB and all the data she and others put in is absolutely water-tight and doesn’t leak any information. Although you can lock CouchDB as much down as you need, open and sharable databases are the default and it is a good thing.
