Fundamental Security Guides

The portal uses SAP NetWeaver Application Server for Java as its underlying application server. Therefore you must read and apply the security recommendations in the SAP NetWeaver Application Server Java Security Guide for all productive portal installations. This guide only describes the security information that differs from it as well as additional security information.

If you set up a SAP NetWeaver Portal scenario with Knowledge Management, you must also read the Knowledge Management security guide.
