Client-Side Field Level Encryption Methods¶
For details on specific methods, including syntax and examples, click on the specific method to go to its reference page.
mongo client-side field level encryption methods
require a database connection with client-side field level encryption
enabled. If the current database connection was not initiated with
client-side field level encryption enabled, either:
Mongo()constructor from the
mongoshell to establish a connection with the required client-side field level encryption options. The
Mongo()method supports the following Key Management Service (KMS) providers for Customer Master Key (CMK) management:
- Use the
mongoshell command line options to establish a connection with the required options. The command line options only support the Amazon Web Services KMS provider for CMK management.
The following methods are for
only. For instructions on implementing client-side field level
encryption using a MongoDB 4.2+ compatible driver, defer to the
driver documentation. See Driver Compatibility Table for
a complete list of 4.2+ compatible drivers with support for
client-side field level encryption.
