Hiding the input database - beginner´s question


#1

Hi,
I am considering using a Shiny for displaying some research data for the public. However, the input data cannot be made public for privacy reason. Is there a way to hide the database so that none can reach it?
I´d like to clarify it before I begin to learn Shiny; I have not found such information online. Thanks for any answers in advance!

Yes, it is possible to set up your network so that your shiny server can read your database and it is closed from the “open” internet.
This is more of a network issue than shiny issue.
