Security notes correct vulnerabilities in SAP standard software that can be exploited internally or externally. Use the System Recommendations application to keep your systems up to date. SAP software is subject to high quality assurance standards - however, security vulnerabilities may occur in the code. These vulnerabilities can, in the worst case scenario, open the door to external and internal intruders. It is not difficult to find guidance on exploiting these vulnerabilities in relevant internet forums. A permission concept is only as good as the code that performs the permission checks. If no permission check occurs in your code, the permission concept cannot restrict access. For these reasons, SAP has introduced Security Patch Day (every other Tuesday of the month), which will allow you to better plan for implementing the security advisories. In addition, you can use the System Recommendations application in the SAP Solution Manager to get a detailed, cross-system overview of the security advice you need. The system status and the SAP hints already implemented are taken into account. With this support, ensure that your system landscape is at the current security level.

The basic idea of the approach described below is to evaluate the previous usage behaviour (reverse engineering) for the definition of the required permissions. In the first step, you configure the retention time of usage data, because each SAP system logs the calls to bootable applications. This way, not only the user, at what time, what transaction, but also the user, which function block was called. These data are then condensed into daily, weekly and monthly aggregates and stored for a specified period. This statistical usage data is originally intended for performance analysis; You can also use them to determine the permissions you need. We described the configuration of the retention time of the statistical usage data in Tip 26, "Use usage data for role definition". Please also refer to our explanations on the involvement of your organisation's co-determination body in the storage and use of the statistical usage data. In addition to the settings described in Tip 26, you should also adjust the retention time for the RFC Client Profile (WO), RFC Client Destination Profile (WP), RFC Server Profile (WQ), and RFC Server Destination Profile (WR) task types using the SWNCCOLLPARREO Care View.

Only current profile data is always recorded, so that obsolete profiles and permissions in the target system cannot be deleted by transport. This data remains associated with the users and remains effective until it clears a user synchronisation with the Cleanup option (transaction PFUD).

At you will also find a lot of useful information on the subject of SAP authorizations.

For an authorization concept, a clear goal must first be defined that is to be achieved with the help of the concept. This should list which regulatory requirements the respective SAP system must fulfill and the associated authorization concept must take into account. In this way, the legal framework conditions are defined. In addition, uniform naming conventions should be used because, on the one hand, many things cannot be changed after the initial naming and, on the other hand, this ensures searchability in the SAP system. Clearly defined responsibilities ensure the effectiveness of a concept. Specific persons must be named or at least roles defined in a separate section. A chapter should be dedicated to the process for user management. Here, it must be described how users obtain existing SAP authorizations, how new users are integrated into the SAP system, and who is responsible for approving authorizations. The chapter on the process for authorization management defines who is allowed to create and edit which roles and who is responsible for the development of various related processes. The chapter on special authorizations describes processes and special features in the area of non-dialog operations. These include job management and interface convention. Other administrative authorizations can also be described. The chapter on role concept explains how business requirements are transferred to a technical role. The role concept takes on a special significance, since it describes the actual mapping of business roles to the technical roles and thus to the authorizations in SAP.

"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.

If roles are required in different languages, you can translate the texts.

The freeware Scribble Papers puts an end to the confusing paper chaos. The tool is also suitable for storing, structuring and quickly finding text documents and text snippets of all kinds in addition to notes.

The security warnings generated correspond to the audit classes of the events defined in the Security Audit Log.
