But when it comes to the intricacies of large SAP environments, Ansible quickly reaches its limits. If you want to use Ansible to implement simple automations - starting and stopping SAP environments, for example - you have to put up with a lot of manual effort and complicated scripts.
A secure SAP system does not only include a good role concept. It is also necessary to check whether a user should (still) have a specific role. Regular verification of role assignment is called recertification. In this blog post, I'd like to introduce you to the need for recertifications and our own tool, EasyReCert. The need for recertification - scenarios: Example 1: The "apprentice problem" Imagine the following scenario: A new employee (e.g. apprenticeship or trainee) will go through various departments as part of his or her training and will work on various projects. Of course, an SAP User will be made available to your employee right at the beginning, which is equipped with appropriate roles. As each project and department passes, the employee repeatedly needs new permissions to meet the requirements. After the employee has successfully completed his or her induction and is now in a permanent position, he or she still has permissions that are not necessary to perform his or her duties. This violates the principle of "last privilede" and represents a potential security risk for your company. Example 2: The change of department The change of department is one scenario that probably occurs in every company. If a change of department does not automatically involve a complete reallocation of roles and the employee simply takes his old permissions with him, critical combinations of permissions can occur very quickly. For example, an employee who has permissions in accounts payable and accounts receivable violates the SoD ("Segregation of Duties") principle and poses a potential security risk to your company. Recertification as part of a revision: The two examples above show that a regular review of role allocation identifies potential security risks for your business and can be addressed.
Different events can be used to change to the new or changed role concept. Among other things, the introduction of new technologies can be used to establish, for example, the characteristics of the SME or technology architect. But also fluctuation or new hires are suitable for the conversion and establishment of the new roles. In principle, it is recommended that the new rollers be introduced and implemented successively parallel to the existing operating model.
Will Blockchain's Economy and Administration Revolutionise? What is a blockchain? A blockchain is a complete and unchanging transaction history of all transactions of a decentralised community that everyone who is part of it agrees to. The word blockchain first fell in connection with Bitcoin as a decentralised network for payments in the digital currency of the same name. The blockchain describes an underlying technology in which all transactions are publicly and unchangeably recorded. This transaction history is updated periodically. Each participant in the decentralised community accepts it as a reality, stores it on their computer, and can thus ensure at any time that no one can duplicate expenditure, as this would lead to a conflict in the transaction history elsewhere. A peculiarity of blockchain technology is that it has solved the "Double Spending Problem". Double-spending means something that can be doubled, and by 2008, only one central institution was considered to be sustainable. Double Spending can best be understood using the example of an image on a mobile phone. When I upload it to Facebook, I made a copy of it and I can upload it to Instagram, for example. So I used my picture "double". This effect made it impossible to establish a trustworthy, decentralised digital currency by 2008.
