In this chapter, you will learn what the security features of Neo4j are and how they apply, such as with their roles and access restrictions. If security is the number one priority to your admins it is because some data can be so sensitive that it has to be restricted to chosen groups of users. You would not want some unknown jerk to delete your data from somewhere on the internet, would you?
When users can be counted in hundreds, you need a directory (or to have more admins to create accounts; do not do that it is silly).
We will be covering the following topics in the chapter:
- Authentication and authorization
- Users management
- Linking Neo4j to an LDAP directory
- Configuring Neo4j to use LDAP
