    Description

      Today to start the server with TLS, you may run a command like:

      ./mongod --sslMode requireSSL --sslPEMKeyFile server.pem
      

      This is slightly misleading, because the server does not speak SSL, which is a deprecated protocol. We should have aliases to equivalent options which use the name "tls". This will make users understand and feel better about their security posture.
