Security and operatingSystem question

Hi, I am a sql DBA but supporting mongodb too. I have enabled authentication in config file and created logins separately for user databases and admin database for developers to use in the application. What kind of security is it called? Any name for it? Thanks for your help.

Another question: TEST and prod servers has 2012 windows operating system. Because of this I couldn’t upgrade mongo past 4.2. Only way to upgrade mongo is to first upgrade operating system, correct?

The default authentication method is Salted Challenge Response Authentication Mechanism, SCRAM.

Correct. 4.4 requires Server 2016+
