We are working with sensitive data in an r-server, which is installed on a Linux Ubuntu server in an internal network. The connection to the linux server is SSL protected an AD authentication is needed.
We have a need to produce interactive visualizations of the data without showing the actual data. Following really good experiences with RShiny apps, we have discussed whether to also proceed with installing the shiny server on the Linux Ubuntu server.
Before any steps are taken, our IT section would hope to see whether an app running in Shiny Server Open Source could be accessible for people having contact to the internal network (VPN needed) but not access to the actual Linux server where the Shiny server would be running. Do you know if this is possible, or is this restricted to non-open source versions of Shiny servers? In addition, would I be able to visualize the shiny app through the linux server HTTPS protocol or would the internet connection be created directly from the shiny server as HTTP?
I have looked through stackoverflow forums and RStudio's website Shiny Server - RStudio but got mixed answers.
