Abstract

NoSQL databases are gaining popularity in recent times for their ability to manage high volumes of unstructured data efficiently. This necessitates such databases to have strict data security mechanisms. Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC) has been widely appreciated for its high flexibility and dynamic nature. We present an approach for integrating ABAC into NoSQL databases, specifically MongoDB, that typically only support Role-Based Access Control (RBAC). We also discuss an implementation and performance results for ABAC in MongoDB, while emphasizing that it can be extended to other NoSQL databases as well.
