SAP Mobile Infrastructure uses the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) or Secure Hypertext Transmission Protocol (HTTPS) for communications between the mobile device and the server. The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is to be used when data is transferred.
The components only transfer data if the user of the device was identified by the SAP MI Server Component, that is, if there is a valid user on the server. The user must also be authorized to synchronize data (S_ME_SYNC).
