    Hi Ramesh,

    If you don't have security training/experience I suggest that you book yourself on course ADM940 which covers auth basics (including info on creating a role matrix etc).

    If you don't have this then make sure that you work with someone who has done this. You would be very lucky to produce a reasonable design without either the training or using someone who knows what they are talking about.

    Other resources are the following publications (you can find them via google):

    Authorizations Made Easy (the 4.6 version is bit out of date but if you read & learn it you will be more than OK)

    SAP Security and Authorizations

    Risk Management and Compliance with Legal Regulations in the SAP Environment

    SAP Authorization System

    Design and Implementation of Authorization Concepts for SAP R/3 and SAP Enterprise Portals

    For a wide overview of security I would recommend the SAP Security and Authorizations book, as a design aid I personally feel that SAP Authorization System would be more appropriate for a newbie
