In order to make a transaction in cryptocurrencies, you do not have to let your bank know about it as you would for "normal" money, but you have to use the Private Key to prove that you own the coins. The transaction looks like a piece of the puzzle. Half of the puzzle piece consists of information about the coin set, time and public address of the sender or receiver. The other half is the signature of the private key belonging to the sent public address. Both halves make this piece unique. Changing only one piece of information would completely change the whole transaction or the appearance of the puzzle piece. This transaction is transferred to the network or to the miner and is checked for correctness first. If everything fits, the transaction will be sent to other miners who will do the same. Otherwise, the transaction is ignored. Miners try to integrate the transactions into a block. This is called mining and we have described it so that the miners put the puzzle pieces together into a puzzle (block). A small part of a block to be integrated follows from the block that was previously mined. If all miners accept the correctness of a completed block, they will all work the next one immediately. The puzzle (block) is fixed and is irrevocably connected to the block before or after. The blocks form a chain and are called blockchain, which contains all the transactions that have ever been made and is visible and unchangeable by everyone. In doing so, blockchain replaces a central institution and avoids double-spending, which ultimately gives value to a cryptocurrency. Smart Contracts The biggest advance compared to Bitcoin and similar applications is that second-generation blockchains, such as Ethereum, use the so-called Turing-Complete script language Solidity. This enables calculations to be made within the blockchain. While Bitcoin allows only rudimentary multi-signature functions, Ethereum opens the door to much more complex operations called smart contracts. Smart contracts are contracts in which a decentralised blockchain ensures their unchangeability and execution.

SWPM - the Software Provisioning Manager integrates the classical tools like sapinst, ehpup, etc. for the maintenance/installation of SAP systems.

Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
In this article you will learn:
An SAP HANA system lives on applications. When you develop these applications, you should think about securing them early. Using HTTPS instead of HTTP is one of the basics. In addition, you ensure secure authentication and implement a Secure Software Development Lifecycle to ensure backup in your own developments. In your applications, you better start to check them for risks early on and run this backup process regularly. You can analyse and restrict access to source code later. Create a risk register and address security vulnerabilities in a risk-based manner. The later you discover a risk, the more expensive the fix will be. Further information on SAP Security in addition to the article can be found here. Do you have any further questions or suggestions concerning this topic? Would you like us to go further on the subject? I look forward to your feedback!

A role concept according to best practice protects you from potential attacks within your SAP landscape. However, to protect your system from unauthorized access via the network, the SAP Gateway must be configured correctly. It enables the use of external programs via interfaces or the call of ABAP programs and serves as a technical component of the application server, which manages the communication of all RFC-based functions.

Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".

XAMS works here with a limited time assignment of reference users with extended privileges to enable the emergency user concept.

So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.


This need can also be inferred from legal requirements.
