Reading this article you will learn:

  • The scope of security for Knowledge Management, Web Dynpro for Java, Business Process Management, and portal applications
  • The importance of system users
  • How SAP portal developers and administrators can contribute to boosting security by closing unguarded loopholes
  • How security can be implemented programmatically so that even if a Basis or security team fails to close a security risk, your application can still be protected
Key Concept

System users are non-physical users who do not have an ID and password. That means you cannot log in with a system user as you do with any other User Management Engine (UME) users.

SAP security is one of those neglected areas that organizations are now giving their due importance. Since confidential organizational data is now widely used and accessed over the Internet using mobile devices such as PDAs and tablets, it has become imperative that organizations take security very seriously. Efforts must be taken to ensure nobody can hack into systems and intercept data transactions.
