Dear OME team/community,
I was wondering if there are any minimal safety requirements/configuration for accessing OMERO-server from internet. And how other OMERO instances are set up regarding this issue (e.g. IDR, OME demo server).
As you know most Universities IT departments are not keen on opening ports to servers from outside world. Here in Leiden, we are looking/testing the possibilities to allow users get access from internet outside the University premises and for users not affiliated with Leiden Universities.
We had a look at how IDR was set up for granting access to users, which is quite complex and too advance for our needs at the moment. I could not find information on how for example OME demo server was set up, which would be more suitable for our purpose (I think). Is there a difference between demo server and IDR security wise?
We were wondering if you could share some advice/ideas on how to secure a writable OMERO-server over internet connection. Or where we could find more appropriate information on this subject.
Your help will be enormously appreciated.
