      Description

      Its my understanding that traffic between mongos/mongoc/mongod (including traffic between members of a replica set) happens in clear text. (Except for user logins, which are hashed.

      If thats the case then:

      • is there plan to support some kind of traffic encryption in a future release3?
      • what strategies do you recommend to encrypt this traffic within a single datacenter? I'm assuming this is a tunneling approach.
