Securing MongoDB

So, MongoDB presented us with two problems:

  • When sharding it, we can’t even use the basic security that it supports.
  • The basic security that it offers is not reasonable for allowing external servers to connect to MongoDB.

Let’s just review:

  • you have this sharding setup: MongoDB sharding

  • on top of that add some Nginx

  • switch from using a binary protocol to HTTP

Doesn’t sound easy or out of the box anymore.
