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 is where all the system's data resides. These are composed of the actual database and the DBMS, the "database management system". In earlier versions, the database here came from different manufacturers. For example, Microsoft SQL or Oracle. Since SAP HANA, a lot has changed for IT in this data layer. This is because the database comes from SAP itself and is automatically monitored by the system. There is more to this database layer than just the working data. Important elements such as the configuration tables and system data for control and application content are also stored here. This is the repository data used by applications.

What makes using Avantra so interesting is the elimination of manual effort. This frees up SAP technology teams to build new skills.
In order to escape the checks carried out by the iris scanners and ultimately his own arrest, a doctor illegally reuses his eyes and acts under a new identity. With the help of the new eyes he finally succeeds in entering the secured area of the "Precogs" and he can begin his investigation. Through this "biohacking" he not only deceives the biometric security systems - he compromises the highest police control system. All stories!? "Great stories!" think now. But: No one will ever fall for a simple trim. And anyway: Biometric security systems and eye transplantation? It's not for nothing a science fiction movie! What does this have to do with RFC security? All right, I can understand your doubts. But how do you like the following story, for example? RFC Security and the Art of Identity Change Germany, everywhere, 2017: Johannes Voigt has been a medium-sized company employee for several years. He is considered a reliable and conscientious developer from the IT department. In fact, he is increasingly unfairly treated. He decides that he no longer wants to carry his frustration with him.
