The security of an SAP system requires protection against unauthorised access, e.g. through the secinfo and reginfo files. A cleanly implemented authorisation concept protects against attacks within the SAP system. However, it is also possible to attack your SAP system via the network. Through the RFC Gateway Server, your system communicates with external servers and programmes. One particularly effective way to protect against this are so-called Access Control Lists (ACL). Find out what this is and how you can use it to better protect your SAP system. The SAP Standard offers different approaches for gate protection. All methods combined can provide even greater safety. For example, it is possible to use Access Control Lists (ACL) to monitor exactly which external programmes and which hosts can communicate with the gateway. Another option is to configure the gateway to support Secure Network Communication (SNC). Finally, there are various security parameters for the gateway. This article focuses on the use of ACL files such as secinfo and reginfo files. What is an ACL? Access control lists are files in which permitted or prohibited communication partners can be recorded. For the gateway to use these ACL files, parameters must be set in the default profile of the SAP system and of course the files must be maintained accordingly. With the help of logs and traces, which can be configured for this purpose, a precise investigation can be made in advance of the activation, which connections currently run via the gateway. This allows them to prevent important applications with which your system communicates from being blocked by the ACL files. The rules in the ACL files are read from top to bottom of the gateway to decide whether to allow a communication request. If none of the rules matches the requesting programme, it will be blocked. Network-based ACL The network-based ACL file contains permitted and prohibited subnets or specific clients.

This possibility is particularly advantageous when it is a new topic and there is not yet a lot of know-how in the company. Instead of buying an expensive coach to teach employees the basics of a new topic, this means that the knowledge can be made available more cheaply and in a longer term, for example, through an online course.

To facilitate communication within IT departments, it is necessary to identify clear communication channels and contact persons and also to use uniform tools for communication. It would also be possible to designate contact points (contact points) for upstream and downstream IT departments and external service providers and suppliers.

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 order to cope with the digital transformation in general, but also to cope with the changing demands on the SAP basis and its scope of responsibility, it is necessary to revise existing roles and define and establish new roles. These include the roles of the technology architect, new features of the Subject Matter Expert (SME), and the role of the Expert Team Lead in leading a group of experts. Further information can be found in chapter 7.1 and 9.3 of the Master's thesis.

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

With the function module SWNC_COLLECTOR_GET_AGGREGATES one can thus determine the most important SAP Basis transactions.

Creating users, assigning roles, locking and unlocking users, etc.
