The Tigase server is designed to work in this particular scenario.
You can split the server installation into 2 parts:
1. All the connection managers (c2s, s2s, Bosh) in the DMZ
2. The rest of the server (session manager, MUC, PubSub and others)
      in the intranet.

The session manager is responsible for handling user authentication
so it can connect to a database or any other service in your intranet
and does not expose your confidential data to the internet.
