    Tableau Server/Desktop and R Integration and Security?

    Jacob Blumenauer

      Hi,

       

      We're planning on integrating Tableau with R.  They are going to be on different servers since Tableau only has a windows offering and R is recommended to be on Linux for best performance. The way the integration works is that Tableau Server/Tableau Desktop have to send data over the network to the Rserve() service with passes it to the R engine and the result gets passed back over the network. 

       

      How secure is the data is when it's being passed between either Tableau product (Sever vs Desktop may behave differently) and R?  Is it encrypted?

       

      Stay gold,

      Jacob
