Query Data from Active Directory
If you use configuration validation, we still recommend that you use the AGS Security Services, such as the EarlyWatch Alerts and SAP Security Optimisation Services, which we describe in Tip 93, "AGS Security Services." SAP keeps the specifications and recommendations in the AGS Security Services up to date and adapts them to new attack methods and security specifications. If you have identified new security issues within a security service, you can set your target systems accordingly and monitor these aspects in the future.
Consulting firms adjust the roles and authorizations in retrospect. This usually means "making the best of it" and making ad hoc adjustments - in other words, not fixing the root cause and cleaning up from scratch. Companies should therefore ask themselves: how can this be avoided? What requirements must a DSGVO-compliant authorization concept fulfill? How can we remain meaningful regarding the authorizations of specific individuals in the system and the purpose of the authorizations?
Permissions with status
You can now assign transactions to these roles. Experience has shown that roles should remain application-specific and that a distinction between book or investing, changing and reading roles is also useful. There will be regular transactions used in multiple roles. You should not overestimate the often demanded freedom of redundancy. However, for critical transactions or transactions that are involved in a functional separation conflict, it is recommended that they be kept in a separate role. In general, roles should not contain too many transactions; Smaller roles are easier to maintain and easier to derive. Also, assigning them does not quickly lead to the problem that users have too many permissions. If you keep the necessary functional separations in place, you have already prepared them as a takeaway.
Authorization tools are a great help in designing a highly automated compliance management system that precisely fits the company's own requirements. The introduction of authorization tools takes some time, but should nevertheless be tackled by companies in order to increase efficiency in the long term and save costs at the same time.
"Shortcut for SAP systems" is a tool that enables the assignment of authorizations even if the IdM system fails.
