      Yes, that is correct - you need a product that has an SNC library and is used for SSO, so that the SAP GUI user is authenticated in same way as the browser user and the session is also encrypted after the user has authenticated.

    yes,  you can secure the communication channel using SNC libraries. What method of authentication is your portal using when users logon ?

    Hi Tim,

    If i'm not wrong, its using Logon Ticket

    • The logon ticket is not a form of user authentication. The logon ticket is issued after the user has authenticated and often stored as a session cookie in users browser.

      Maybe I can ask what happens when a user logs onto the portal. Do they logon to their Windows workstation using an AD account and then open browser and access portal without a SignOn screen being shown ?
