SAP SSO using existing PKI (Microsoft Certificate Server)

Am looking to implement SAP SSO leveraging an existing PKI. The PKI is a Microsoft Certificate Server.

SAP SSO would be used for SAP GUI for Windows, portal, NWBC.

According to the SSO install guide, it appears that the Secure Login Client is required but that the Secure Login Server is not required in this case of an existing MS Cert Server. And the MS Cert Server could be used for x.509 certificates.

In looking through the install guide and blogs, I'm not seeing anything specific along these lines (install SSO w/MS Cert Server), would appreciate any direction towards existing document/blogs on how to do this.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this one?

    Hi Dan,

    Your understanding is correct. You do not need SSO server as long as you have certificates on both end user and ABAP server sides. The purpose of SSO server is only to help to convert the authentication result into a certificate.

      No, a step-by-step guide or any other detailed document was never found for using a MS PKI along with the SAP SSO Solution. Would be interested in any findings as there is still interest here in considering that type of implementation.
