RECOMMENDED GATEWAY SETTINGS FOR RFC SYSTEM PROTECTION
Indirect use of SAP
So-called Access Control Lists (ACL) offer a good possibility to secure your gateway in order to exclude unwanted external accesses to the database of the application server. With the help of the ACL files reginfo and secinfo an access control can be implemented, in which allowed as well as forbidden communication partners can be defined. The reginfo file controls the registration of external programs on the gateway, which means that rules can be defined that allow or prohibit programs. With the help of the file secinfo you can define which users are allowed to start an external program. To be able to use these files, you must set the parameters gw/reg_info and gw/sec_info (transaction RZ11). For more information, refer to SAP Note 1408081.
SAP Basis is structured as a classic three-tier model. It contains the following components:
Error minimization & data security
In addition to the consultants working in the individual SAP modules, there is a subarea here that is not directly apparent to many and whose activities seem to be quite opaque: SAP Basis. The smooth operation of SAP systems as the heart of many companies is ensured by the work of SAP Basis administrators.
The tasks of a company's own SAP Basis department are undergoing enormous change at many companies, as SAP is also relying more and more 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.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" a tool is available that greatly facilitates some tasks in the SAP basis.
If the technical operation is not sufficiently assessed in the decision, there is a significant business risk.
