Default A Plan to Stop Breaches With Dead Simple Database Encryption

A Plan to Stop Breaches With Dead Simple Database Encryption
MongoDB calls the new feature Field Level Encryption. It works kind of like end-to-end encrypted messaging, which scrambles data as it moves across the internet, revealing it only to the sender and the recipient. In such a "client-side" encryption scheme, databases utilizing Field Level Encryption will not only require a system login, but will additionally require specific keys to process and decrypt specific chunks of data locally on a user's device as needed. That means MongoDB itself and cloud providers won't be able to access customer data, and a database's administrators or remote managers don't need to have access to everything either.
Signature: Furthermore, I consider that systemd must be destroyed.
Based on Latin oratorical phrase
