Task & functionality of the SAP authorization concept
In case of missing authorizations, SAP Basis also helps with an authorization trace in addition to the well-known SU53 for a more detailed analysis of authorization objects. The article "SAP Basis Basic or finding missing authorizations thanks to SU53 or ST01 Trace" describes this in more detail.
For the configuration, you must first enable encryption and, if necessary, signing in the SAPConnect administration. To do this, go to Settings > Outgoing Messages > Settings on the Signing & Encryption tab of the SCOT transaction. Note that the activation only enables the encryption or signature of emails; whether this is actually done always controls the sending application.

We recommend that you implement all safety instructions of priority very high (1) and high (2) directly. On the other hand, you can implement medium (3) and low (4) security advisories via support packages, which you should also include regularly. If you are unable to insert a support package at the moment, SAP will also provide you with the priority 3 and 4 security advisories. For the evaluation of the security advisories, you should define a monthly security patch process.
You can use the BAdI SMIME_EMAIL of the SMIME extension spot and implement the CERTIFICATE_RETRIEVAL and CERTIFICATE_SELECTION methods according to your requirements. This BAdI is called whenever an encrypted e-mail is sent. An extension allows you to search for a valid certificate at run time (for example, the one with the longest validity) to the recipient's email address in a source you defined. In the default implementation, the BAdI searches for the certificate in the Trust Manager's address book. For details on the availability of BAdIs, see SAP Note 1835509.
