Challenges and Security Issues of NOsql Databases

Authors(3) :-Dr. Deepak Chahal, Dr. Latika Kharb, Manhar Gupta

In this paper we will be discussing about what are the security problems in NOSQL, what concerns has to be taken care to solve the security issues in NOSQL while the data is in moving or in rest, during authentication and authorization. This paper also includes the vulnerabilities in NOSQL as well as Injections in NOSQL from which un-authorized person can breach the security. Multi model Heterogeneous problems explain the detail concept of the security issue when types of databases merge with each other. It includes the explanation of different layers exist in NOSQL with some particular databases issue. In last some currents issues or breaches in NOSQL has been explained.
