I was reading this post in digitalocean titled How To Secure MySQL Replication Using SSH on a VPS about “Using SSH tunneling MySQL replication data can be transferred through the SSH connection”.
And was wondering if is a bad idea to do the same with CouchDB. Would that even work? Does it have to be a bidirectional ssh tunnel because CouchDB has multi-master sync ? Are there any security issues ? I’m not considering a private network because droplets would be in different regions. Maybe the right approach is to build a VPN, but I would still like know your opinions about the ssh tunnel.
