      Description

      URL: https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/core/security-client-side-encryption/#encryption-algorithms

      Links to a wikipedia article in the paragraph,

      "MongoDB client-side field level encryption uses the encrypt-then-MAC approach combined with either a deterministic or random initialization vector to encrypt field values. MongoDB only supports the AEAD AES-256-CBC encryption algorithm with HMAC-SHA-512 MAC."

       

      As reported here, that link is outdated and should be replaced with the current one at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authenticated_encryption#Authenticated_encryption_with_associated_data_(AEAD)
