SAP System Analysis
The tasks of a company's own SAP Basis department are currently undergoing enormous change, as SAP is also increasingly relying on cloud services. Strategically, completely self-hosted SAP systems are becoming rarer and the proportion of customers using an SAP system from the cloud is increasing. The new roles of SAP Basis employees tend to be "enablers" and coordinators between the cloud provider and internal IT and the business departments. Until that time comes, companies can also rely on external service providers to offer expert know-how as well as operational support for the transition period.
What do RFC interfaces and RFC security have to do with the play "Hauptmann von Köpenick" and the science fiction film "Minority Report"? Probably more than you like! RFC security and theatre?! Germany, Berlin, 1906: The 46-year-old cobbler Wilhelm Voigt dreams of returning to a normal life. After various convictions and many prison stays, he lives on the margins of society. It's not just the money he lacks. Above all, the lack of access to his social system makes him. In view of his impasse, he opts for a drastic measure. The excluded shoemaker pulls off and grates off several junk dealers to assemble a military uniform gradually. A few days later, he slips into the same disguise, successfully changes his identity and then swings through Berlin as Captain von Köpenick. He commandeers soldiers, storms the town hall and even detains the mayor. There is no doubt about the commands and their execution, because their true identity is veiled: Because of a simple disguise. A disguise that gives him all the necessary permissions he needs for his scam. At the end of the day, Wilhelm Voigt successfully compromised the Berlin government. RFC Security and Science Fiction?! USA, Washington, DC, 2054: The Washington police have long since stopped investigating murders: It prevents the killings right in advance. For this purpose, so-called "precogs" are used, which use precognition to predict and report murders in visions before they happen. At the same time, the government uses a system of public scanners that can identify all citizens clearly at any time by iris detection. One day, when policeman John Anderton himself appears as the culprit in a vision of the "Precogs," he flees the police building and decides to find out why.
Control users and access rights
In the authorization environment, in addition to assigning authorizations to SAP users, there are a number of important SAP Basis settings that you should check regularly to ensure that your SAP system is fully protected, both internally and externally. For example, particularly in the context of an audit, it is important to ensure that changes to the SAP system always remain traceable. In this blog, I would like to show you how you can best implement this and what to look out for.

In the interests of system security, changes to repository and client-independent objects should also not be permitted.
Security Automation via SAP Security Check The first option of Security Automation, which I want to introduce here, is the automatic verification of the existing permissions.
