Setting the confidentiality or encryption markers in the SEND_EMAIL_FOR_USER method affects the display of the e-mail in Business Communication Services Administration (transaction SCOT). If the email is marked as confidential, it can only be viewed by the sender or the creator of the email. The sender and the creator need not necessarily be identical, for example, if you have entered the system as the sender. The e-mail creator is the one who ran the application in the context of which the e-mail was created. The encryption flag also automatically sets the confidentiality of the email. The e-mail is not stored in the system in encrypted form, but is protected against unauthorised access by the confidentiality flag. However, access by the sender or creator is still possible. You should also note that the subject of the email is not encrypted.
Configuration validation is a tool that allows systems to be tested against corporate or organisational requirements and regulations. You can find this tool in the Change Management section of the SAP Solution Manager. This allows you to evaluate security-relevant configurations and critical permissions. This is based on the SAP Solution Manager's Configuration and Change Database (CCDB), which stores all details about the configuration of the connected systems. The configuration data is stored in different configuration stores, depending on the type of configuration. You can evaluate the configuration of the operating system, the database, and profile parameters in the ABAP and Java systems. You will also get an overview of the status of transport orders and support packages. You can also track changes to the configurations of the attached systems in the CCDB. You can also graphically evaluate these changes via an end-to-end analysis in SAP BW; contains information on the number of changes per system, the type of changes and the modification date.
Authorization concept of AS ABAP
In contrast to storing passwords in the form of hash values, the user ID and password are transmitted unencrypted during the login of the client to the application server. The Dynamic Information and Action Gateway (DIAG) protocol is used, which may look somewhat cryptic but does not represent encryption. In addition, there is no cryptographic authentication between the client and the application server. This applies not only to communication between the user interface and the application server, but also to communication between different SAP systems via Remote Function Call (RFC). So, if you want to protect yourself against the access of passwords during the transfer, you have to set up an encryption of this communication yourself.
The best way for companies to combat historically grown uncontrolled growth in authorizations is to prevent it. An analysis of whether the current authorization concept is sufficient for the company helps here.
