How are blockchain and digital currencies related? Blockchain technology provides the basis for the existence of a decentralised digital currency. Such a currency is an application that can be executed on the basis of an underlying blockchain. However, the blockchain offers many more applications, such as ownership, identification, communication, etc. , all of which want to get rid of a central controlling party. Blockchain: is the immutable transaction history of a decentralised community. Cryptocurrency: An application of blockchain technology to use a blockchain to secure information about the currency via cryptography. What is Mining? Mining is one of the most misunderstood things about cryptocurrencies. Most people believe that mining is a process in which a cryptocurrency is created. But that is wrong. Mining is a process in a decentralised system to build consensus. Consensus means consent and agreement on what happened and what didn't. In a central system, the central institution does that. For example, a bank with all its advantages and disadvantages. In a decentralised system, the Community decides. To avoid any disagreements, "Mining" is used as one of the possibilities.
Customers with such a case regularly contact us. Creating a Permission Concept from the ground up is often a time-consuming task. Furthermore, the know-how, which aspects should be dealt with in an authorisation concept and how the corresponding processes can look practical and at the same time audit-proof is often lacking. Our solution: tool-based generation of an individual, written authorisation concept In this situation, we have recommended to our customers the tool-based generation of a written authorisation concept directly from the SAP system. We use the XAMS Security Architect tool, with which we have had good experiences. This includes a template for a revision-proof and comprehensible, written authorisation concept. It includes established best practices for role and entitlement management. The template covers all relevant areas in a permission concept. The included text of the authorisation concept is completely customisable, so that the concept can be tailored to your situation without creating a permission concept from scratch. Dynamically update the written authorisation concept One of the biggest challenges after the development of an authorisation concept is to keep it up to date in the long term and to measure the sustainable implementation in the system. This is achieved by integrating live data such as configuration settings and defined rules directly from the connected system. For example, lists of existing roles or user groups and tables are read from the system each time the document is generated and updated in the permission concept. The following screenshot shows an example of what the appearance in the concept document might look like. Automatically check and monitor compliance with the concept To check compliance with the concept, the XAMS Security Architect includes extensive inspection tools. These cover the rules formulated in the concept and are suitable for measuring the extent to which the reality in the system meets the requirements formulated in the concept.
