I have an NodeJS app running on AWS instance(the one you get for free). I want to get access to Web3 object in my server.js file. I don't think that installing and running full client like Geth on AWS instance is possible/viable, because of how much computational resources it requires or some other technical reasons, I'm talking out of my armpit right now. Maybe some kind of light client is the answer, idk.
I've also read somewhere that it's possible to connect an app to a remote node through and RPC or something like that, but I also remember that it's not secure for some reasons.
So, what are my options, good sirs?
