For a while now, KNIME has required Rserve for the R integration nodes to work.
I wonder whether the configuration of Rserve exposes or compromises in any way the data being sent through the server connection between KNIME and R. After all, not all data being processed is free of confidentiality.
- What kind of connection (local, remote) is used between KNIME and R together with Rserve ? My question does not relate to KNIME server but to a local installation of KNIME Analytics.
- In case of a local connection, is such a connection accessible by or exposed to any other computers on the network or even outside the network?
- Is there a way for the KNIME user to lock down the said connection, e.g. by requiring authentication ?
