MongoCredentialCreateCredential Method (String, String, SecureString)

Creates a default credential. Less secure when used in conjunction with SCRAM-SHA-256, due to the need to store the password in a managed string in order to SaslPrep it. In .NET Standard, authenticating via SCRAM-SHA-256 may not work with non-ASCII passwords because SaslPrep is not fully implemented due to the lack of a string normalization function in .NET Standard 1.5. Normalizing the password into Unicode Normalization Form KC beforehand MAY help. SCRAM-SHA-1 is the recommended alternative for now.
