Data security is a concern for most people, and recent reports in the news show that significant amounts of user details stored in MongoDB are easily accessible. Does it mean that MongoDB is not able to secure your data? As we will see, MongoDB can be correctly secured, but some features are not enabled by default. In this session, you will learn the main items that need to be checked in order to get a robust MongoDB deployment: - Network security: how to avoid allowing anyone to connect to your MongoDB instances? - Operating system security: how to stop people allowed to connect to MongoDB from taking control of your servers? - User security: how to make sure that users can only interact with specific portions of the data?
Database Engineer, Slice Technologies
Stephane has worked for almost 15 years in open source environments, and has spent most of the last 10 years solving performance or high-availability problems with MySQL and more recently MongoDB. He is now working for Slice Technologies, a company that helps you keep track of your online purchases. His main role is to automate MySQL and MongoDB operations, and from time to time, he is also very excited to kill a nasty query or add a missing index on a 500GB table. When not in front of a computer, Stéphane likes spending time with his family. He also hopes to become a decent chess player someday.
