You are recommended to run a Subversion server process (svnserve or Apache http with mod_dav_svn) on the computer on whose disk the repository resides. There is no problem with this computer being your local workstation. This needn't be inherently insecure, as you imply; you needn't open that server process up to any external network connections, for example.
