    Description

      The BSON spec defines two string types:

      • The "string" type is a sequence of bytes encoded with a length. This sequence can include null bytes since the length of the sequence is encoded.
      • The "cstring" type is a null terminated sequence of bytes. It is not encoded with a length. The sequence ends with a null byte so it can not include null bytes.

      This ticket is to validate that drivers do not allow sequences including null bytes wherever a cstring is required (e.g. document keys, database and collection name, regular expressions, ...)
