Using the SAP interface SNC (Secure Network Communication) guarantees secure communication.
SNC supports third-party security systems (such as Kerberos, SECUDE, etc.).This provides for a reliable authentication of the partners and secure data transfer.
The SAP Gateway can reject connections that are not based on SNC.
SAP provides a range of SNC parameters. For more information on configuration see:
· Parameterization of the SAP Gateway, SNC parameters
· Documentation of parameters that begin with snc (transaction RZ11)
If a user wants to communicate using the SNC interface, the following prerequisites must be met:
1. The user has logged on to the security system
3. The SAP Gateway supports SNC and has been started using the system profile parameter snc/enable.
Documentation on SNC is available in the SAP Service Marketplace under the alias Security (http://service.sap.com/security) ® Security in Detail ® Secure System Management.
Documentation on other security measures that you can configure in the SAP Gateway can be found in Security Settings for the SAP Gateway.
