Enterprise Authentication Mechanisms

In addition to the authentication mechanisms offered, MongoDB Enterprise provides integration with the following authentication mechanisms.

Kerberos Authentication

MongoDB Enterprise supports authentication using a Kerberos service. Kerberos is an industry standard authentication protocol for large client/server systems.

To use MongoDB with Kerberos, you must have a properly configured Kerberos deployment, configured Kerberos service principals for MongoDB, and added Kerberos user principal to MongoDB.
