Configure SAP's Transport Management System (TMS)
Ten years ago, SAP HANA was little more than a promise that made SAP CEO Hasso Plattner's eyes light up. It's hard to imagine that all SAP customers will have completely replaced their Oracle and Microsoft databases in just ten years.
More security with less effort Internal employees often do not have the comprehensive know-how to know all relevant security risks. However, our security experts specialise in this. We use a standardised approach to determine your current security situation. Based on the analysis results, we show you where the security of your SAP systems can be improved and show you possible solutions. Focus your internal resources on your core business, while our experts will perform a customised audit on your SAP system to determine your security status. SAP Security Check - Our standardised approach (4-step model) Briefing: You register an interest in SAP Security Check. A consultant will contact you and discuss the details of the exam. They have the opportunity to clarify individual issues and to determine the focus of the security check. Data extraction: To ensure that your system is not affected by our audit, we export the relevant data manually or with the help of a data export tool. Analysis: Our security experts analyse the data, evaluate the results and prepare your report. Results: We will discuss the results of SAP Security Check with you. If safety deficiencies have been discovered, we will give recommendations for action on how to correct them. Optionally, you can ask our experts to solve your security risks in the short term. Your security risks become transparent Rapid assessment of your current SAP security status Detailed analysis and documentation Simple traffic light system enables overview of the results You can assess and prioritise the potential for danger for your company for every risk Know-how Transfer and recommendations for action You can easily communicate internally with the transparent and easily understandable final report You can close the relevant security gaps with our measures Optional: Eliminating security deficiencies Experts Our standardised approach enables us to assess the security of your SAP systems systematically and quickly. You do not need to build up authorisation expertise.
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.
In order to make a transaction in cryptocurrencies, you do not have to let your bank know about it as you would for "normal" money, but you have to use the Private Key to prove that you own the coins. The transaction looks like a piece of the puzzle. Half of the puzzle piece consists of information about the coin set, time and public address of the sender or receiver. The other half is the signature of the private key belonging to the sent public address. Both halves make this piece unique. Changing only one piece of information would completely change the whole transaction or the appearance of the puzzle piece. This transaction is transferred to the network or to the miner and is checked for correctness first. If everything fits, the transaction will be sent to other miners who will do the same. Otherwise, the transaction is ignored. Miners try to integrate the transactions into a block. This is called mining and we have described it so that the miners put the puzzle pieces together into a puzzle (block). A small part of a block to be integrated follows from the block that was previously mined. If all miners accept the correctness of a completed block, they will all work the next one immediately. The puzzle (block) is fixed and is irrevocably connected to the block before or after. The blocks form a chain and are called blockchain, which contains all the transactions that have ever been made and is visible and unchangeable by everyone. In doing so, blockchain replaces a central institution and avoids double-spending, which ultimately gives value to a cryptocurrency. Smart Contracts The biggest advance compared to Bitcoin and similar applications is that second-generation blockchains, such as Ethereum, use the so-called Turing-Complete script language Solidity. This enables calculations to be made within the blockchain. While Bitcoin allows only rudimentary multi-signature functions, Ethereum opens the door to much more complex operations called smart contracts. Smart contracts are contracts in which a decentralised blockchain ensures their unchangeability and execution.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful in basic administration.
This is the approach I'll describe to you in the following post.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
