How to Implement SSO without Portal

Hi SSO Expert Folks...

We are running on Web AS 6.0, currently the requirement is to have have SSO implemented only in ECC, BW & APO systems ( As of now).

I need to know after logging on into the wndows, the user should just be able to open the Logon pad & just double click on the systems & then it should take him striaght to the menu page & not the login screen.. The user ID & password needs to be taken from what the user has provided during the windows logon..

Can this be done.. Let me know if any one of you have implemented this..

I have gone thruogh the forum & found every post which needs first the user to authenticate himself in the portal & then SSO will be acheived..

The reason why we are excluding portal is coz the portal is only used by ESS Users..

Awaiting your response..

    Yes, it can be done. There are couple of SSO technologies available from SAP (X.509 certificates, Kerberos, etc.), even if you don't want to go through the portal, They can leverage your Windows logon info for user authentication - this includes the certificate-based SSO approach, because you can separate the user authentiction part from the SSO part. Depending on your exact requirements and platforms, some solutions may require 3rd-party software.

    According to your description you are searching for a SSO mechanism (evaluating the "Windows Authentication") for SAPGUI (for Windows).

    Well, in that case SNC is the right approach.

    If your ABAP application servers are running on the Windows platform you should take a look on SAP" target="_blank">">SAP Note 352295 (using a SNC wrapper library provided by SAP). Otherwise you need to purchase a (certified) SNC partner product (see SAP" target="_blank">">SAP Note 66687).
