Sustainably protect your data treasures with the right authorization management
Define critical permission combinations that cannot be assigned in the monitored systems. A whitelist allows you to specify which users (such as emergency users) you want to exclude from the evaluation. Identify vulnerabilities in the configuration of your RFC interfaces, i.e. RFC connections, where users with extensive permissions (e.g., the SAP_ALL profile) are registered. These RFC connections can be used for the so-called RFC-Hopping, where access to an SAP system is made via such an extensively authorised RFC connection.
The concept for in-house developments is obligatory for every company that writes its own software. It specifies requirements, for example, for the structure, naming and documentation of program components, and in particular for dealing with safety-critical aspects. The wording should not be too general, but should explicitly address the special features of programming in SAP.
In the beginning, the FI and CO modules were separated from each other. Both modules have been combined by SAP as higher-level modules in the accounting area. The main reason for this is the tight process structure, which enables a smooth transition between the two modules. As a result, SAP FI and CO now only appear as the joint module SAP FICO.
The P_ABAP (HR-Reporting) authorization object is not required to execute reports, but is intended to improve performance during execution. In addition, it can be used when reports require permissions for info types that the user should not receive in other cases, which is more common. For example, the right to display information type 0008 (basic salary) is also required for the execution of the travel statement reports. The Invoice Payer Programmes also require P_ABAP permissions to process personal data.
The possibility of assigning authorizations during the go-live can be additionally secured by using "Shortcut for SAP systems".
In Unicode systems, there are different spaces, which are represented by different hexadecimal values.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
