Bucket Protection

Couchbase Server provides bucket security using bucket authentication and removal of unprotected buckets.

Bucket Authentication

Couchbase Server authenticates buckets using the SASL password.

For more information, see Authentication.

Removal of Unprotected Buckets

To safeguard security in the production phase, delete the buckets created by the Couchbase Server as a part of the installation process.

This applies to:

  • Default bucket, which has no password support.

  • Any sample buckets supplied with empty passwords.
