Perform Risk Analysis with the Critical Permissions Report
Protect your system from unauthorised calls to RFC function blocks from the S_RFC authorization object by obtaining the necessary permissions using the statistical usage data. In many organisations, the primary focus in the permission environment is on protecting dialogue access. For each required transaction, you decide in detail which groups of people are allowed access. It is often overlooked that the critical S_RFC privilege object requires an analogue permission assignment. If the RFC (Remote Function Call) external access permissions are unneatly defined and assigned to the users, the S_TCODE authorization object quickly bypasses the primary protection for bootable applications.
You can access the ABAP Test Cockpit from the context menu of the object to be checked via Verify > ABAP Test Cockpit. Note that the global check variant of the Code Inspector that you created in the transaction SCI and that is entered as the default in the transaction ATC (ATC configuration) includes the security tests of the extended programme check of the SAP Code Vulnerability Analyser.

Authorizations are used to map the organizational structure, business processes and separation of functions. Therefore, they control the access options of users in the SAP system. The security of business data depends directly on the authorizations assigned. For this reason, the assignment of authorizations must be well planned and executed in order to achieve the desired security.
You can use authorization objects to restrict access to tables or their content through transactions, such as SE16 or SM30. The S_TABU_DIS authorization object allows you to grant access to tables associated with specific table permission groups. You can view, maintain, and assign table permission groups in transaction SE54 (see Tip 55, "Maintain table permission groups"). For example, if an administrator should have access to user management tables, check the permission status using the SE54 transaction. You will notice that all the user management tables are assigned to the SC table permission group.
If you get into the situation that authorizations are required that were not considered in the role concept, "Shortcut for SAP systems" allows you to assign the complete authorization for the respective authorization object.
Here you can filter the evaluation directly and get a better evaluation representation.
You can add your permission suggestions from the trace using the Object > Insert objects from Permissions Trace > Local (see Tip 40, "Use Permission Trace to Determine Suggest Values for Custom Developments").
