The object S_PROGRAM checks since SAP Release 2.x for the field TRDIR-SECU i.e. the authorization group of the program. As of Release 7.40, you can optionally switch on a check for the object S_PROGNAM. For more information, see note 2272827 for further instructions. The check on S_PROGNAM MUST first be activated in the customer system. Note, however, that they CORRECTLY authorize S_PROGNAM before doing so, otherwise NOBODY except emergency users will be able to start any report or report transaction after the SACF scenario is activated.
An SAP authorization concept is used to map relevant legal standards and internal company regulations to the technical protection options within an SAP system. Authorization concepts are thus the key to optimal protection of your system, both externally and internally.

In both cases the transaction S_BCE_68001410 is started. Here you can search for an authorization object by authorization object, authorization object text, object class and other options.
Access to this data is critical, since the hash values can possibly be decrypted using tools, thus enabling unauthorized logon to the SAP system. Since identical passwords are often used for different systems, the determined password may also be usable for downstream systems. The current or former hash values of the passwords are stored in the tables USR02, USH02, USRPWDHISTORY, USH02_ARC_TMP, VUSER001 and VUSR02_PWD. These tables can be accessed either via classic table access transactions such as SE16 or via database administration transactions such as DBACOCKPIT. The authorizations required for table access via database tools depend on the respective system configuration and should be verified via an authorization trace (transaction STAUTHTRACE), if necessary.
For the assignment of existing roles, regular authorization workflows require a certain minimum of turnaround time, and not every approver is available at every go-live. With "Shortcut for SAP systems" you have options to assign urgently needed authorizations anyway and to additionally secure your go-live.
Authorization objects are defined with the help of transaction SU21.
