All it needs is a input variable for the script.. and it is in the intranet and secure.
I would be interested to know what sort of input variable the script needs. Since it is being executed on the server it must relate to the server and must therefore have a very limited domain. Cannot you present the user with a list of possible values and get your user to select one. Your server can then check that the value provided is actually one from the list.
P.S. there are malicious people on an Intranet as well as on the Internet!

I can give a drop down list as well, but that would be dynamic config that needs to be read from a file.
