External Facing Portal scenario


Hi Portal Experts,

I am looking for a success story on "External Facing Portal implementation".

Here is the requirement: The company wanted to implement Portal only in the enterprise's network. The Portal is behind the firewall. The company wanted to allow few (3-5)business partners to run some iViews without accessing to the entire Portal.

- What scenario are available to enable the Portal to be accessible from external world without VPN connection to the enterprise network?

- Is there any additional development need for those iViews (e.g web services support etc.), which will be publised to the external use?

- Any security concern/consideration, extra hardware needs (IDMZ security zone set up etc)?

Thanks a lot for your input!
