MongoDB Security - Is SSL required as Client and Server As One?
I was just going these 10 recommendations for MongoDB security.
Number 8 mentions enabling SSL for data travelling between the Mongo client and Mongo Server. However with the case of my droplet, is this required?
Isn’t the Mongo Server = my droplet. Mongo Client = the mongo installation?
I have a firewall IP restriction so only my node droplet can access that mongo droplet.
So with that is it safe to say SSL isn’t required?
