application communicates with the database. There's no option to add a
password in the application, so I blocked port 1433 to the outside

Before the installation you can set up a setup.ini file with
DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=1 configuration option in it. MSDE will not
listen to any port, therefore cannot be accessed from the net.
