NIST Publishes IR 8504, Access Control on NoSQL Databases
May 07, 2024

NIST has published Internal Report (IR) 8504, Access Control on NoSQL Databases. NoSQL (i.e., “not only SQL” or “non-SQL”) database systems and data stores often outperform traditional relational database management systems (RDBMSs) in various aspects, such as data analysis efficiency, system performance, ease of deployment, flexibility/scalability of data management, and users’ availability. However, with an increasing number of people storing sensitive data in NoSQL databases, access control issues have become a fundamental data protection requirement for database management systems.

This document discusses access control on NoSQL database systems by illustrating the NoSQL database types and their support for access control models. It operates under the assumption that the access control system stores and manages access control data (e.g., subjects, objects, and attributes) in the NoSQL database and describes considerations from the perspective of access control in general.
