Security in development systems
Since Release 4.6D, the system creates a new folder for each of the roles included in the pulley when rebuilding a Collective Roll menu at the first hierarchy level, and only then the corresponding menu is located. You can decide whether the text of each folder should consist of the technical name or the short text of the role. This function can be disabled by customising.
Initial passwords for standard users are extremely risky because they are published. Make sure that this vulnerability does not exist in your system landscape. An SAP system is always shipped with certain standard users or they are automatically set up for the transport management system, for example. These default users use initial passwords that are well known. Close this vulnerability by changing the passwords and protecting the default users from unauthorised use. In this tip we will show you how you can clarify the status of your standard users' passwords and give you recommendations on the settings of your profile parameters.
Security Automation for SAP Security Checks
On the topic of SAP authorizations and SAP S/4HANA, I can recommend the SAP online course by Tobias Harmes as blended learning from Espresso Tutorials for SAP administrators, ABAP developers and people who are currently or will be dealing with SAP authorizations. The online course covers the following topics: - Introduction to the course - Why are SAP authorizations actually important? - How do SAP authorizations work technically? - Developing and maintaining roles - SAP Fiori authorizations/tile authorizations in S/4HANA - Developing authorization checks.
By adding certain SAP standard reports and the user information system ("SUIM"), you can quickly identify security-relevant issues and correct any errors. This improves basic management of your existing security concept and protects you against external and internal intrusions. If you need help with your system analysis, please feel free to contact us. Xiting offers you a wide range of services related to SAP Security. Above all, our proprietary security tool, the Xiting Authorizations Management Suite, or XAMS for short, allows you to build a new role concept based on your usage data and even generate a revision-compliant security concept at the push of a button. Why not see for yourself and join one of our many different webinars.
With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you can automate the assignment of roles after a go-live.
