What has changed in the past decade and what can we expect in the coming decade? How will they affect the requirements profile of SAP Basis experts and how can they adapt to them?

Once you have met all the requirements described above, you can begin to prepare your system for processing digitally signed notes. To do this, the SAP Note with the number 2408073 must be recorded. This consists of a few steps for manual preparation, some automatically executable activities, and steps to rework the note. It is recommended not to change the file name after downloading. Note 2408073 has a file extension of "sar" and will first be unpacked with SAPCAR. There is a zip archive in it. The text file in it can be loaded into the Note Assistant with the SNOTE transaction via the Note upload. Once you have completed these steps, you can begin to install the note. The steps are detailed in the note itself and in a document attached to the note. Therefore, only a few points that need to be considered are highlighted below. When creating and clicking on Save the "CWBDS" object, a message may appear prompting you to select an object from the permitted namespace. Here the cursor can be placed in the object field and confirmed with Enter, then the query is made after a transport order. When creating the message texts in the "SCWN" message class, it is normal that after saving the changes several times (as many times as messages have been created) the question about the transport order must be confirmed. In addition, when creating the message texts, it should be noted that the texts provided in the tutorial attached to the note are available in English. If you are working on a German system, you should translate the texts into the German language when inserting them. The English texts can then be inserted as translations in the same window. To do this, select "Jump -> Translate". Conclusion It is a popular approach among hackers to use updates that are usually intended to fix bugs or increase security to inject malicious code into the system.

In the SAP NetWeaver BI Authorization Concept lesson, the training participant is familiarized with the authorization functions of the SAP Business Information Warehouse. The differences between the authorization concept for ERP systems and the authorization concept for NetWeaver BI are taught.
This makes the technical user the dialogue user and a login in the SAP system is unrestricted. So Johannes logs in with the known password of the RFC user in the production system. Thanks to very extensive permissions, it now has access to all sorts of critical tables, transactions, and programmes in production. With the identity of the RFC user Johannes starts with the technical compromise of the production system... RFC Security: All invented - or everyday threat? Whether a simple trim, altered biometric properties or an encapsulated technical user in the SAP system: the basis of the compromise is the same. A person uses a different identity to gain access and permissions to protected areas. Moreover, the evil in all three stories could have been prevented by pro-activity. When was the last time you thought about the security of your RFC interfaces? Can you say with certainty that all your technical RFC users only have the permissions they actually need? And do you know who exactly knows the passwords of these users? Can you 100% rule out that not now in this moment an SAP user with a false identity infiltrates your production systems? Change now: It's about pro activity! But before you start now and start looking for the "identity converter" (which I really do not recommend!), I suggest that you take root of evil and proactively strengthen your RFC security. So if you want to find out more, I have the following 3 tips for you: 1) Our e-book about SAP RFC interfaces 2) Clean up our free webinar about RFC interfaces 3) Blog post about our approach to optimising RFC interfaces As always, I look forward to your feedback and comments directly below these lines!
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes it easier and quicker to complete a number of SAP basis tasks.
In more complex system environments, thousands, if not tens of thousands, of SAP jobs can run per day.
You should still be aware of the SAP ERP environment to address this security risk.
