Client-Side Field Level Encryption: Protecting the Most Sensitive Workloads

PublishedJune 10, 2020

MongoDB 4.2 introduced Client-Side Field Level Encryption (FLE), an advanced security feature to natively encrypt data at the application using customer-managed keys before documents are ever sent to the database. This session will present reference architectures and production guidance for confidential workloads, including performance optimizations, and recommended encrypted search patterns to getting the most out of FLE.

Example code demonstrating strong end-to-end encryption in Atlas or on-premise will be presented. Implications for developers and others designing systems in regulated environments will be discussed, followed by a deep-dive Q&A.
