    Hi Sameeran Gantyala,

    About this Guide

    The SAP NetWeaver Security Guide provides an introduction to security with the SAP NetWeaver platform as well as individual security guides for each of the SAP NetWeaver products. See the tables below:

    Topic See

    User Administration and Authentication User Administration and Authentication

    Network and Transport Layer Security Network and Communication Security

    Security Aspects in Development Security Aspects in Development

    Why is Security necessary?

    With the increasing use of distributed systems and the Internet for managing business data, the demands on security are also on the rise. When using a distributed system, you need to be sure that your data and processes support your business needs without allowing unauthorized access to critical information. User errors, negligence, or attempted manipulation on your system should not result in loss of information or processing time. These demands on security apply likewise to the SAP NetWeaver platform. To assist you in securing your SAP NetWeaver platform and products, we provide this SAP NetWeaver Security Guide.

    Meeting Your Own Security Requirements: Security Policy

    Your security requirements are not limited to the SAP NetWeaver platform, but apply to your entire system landscape. Therefore, we recommend establishing a security policy that reflects the security issues that apply at a company-wide level. Your security policy should cover aspects such as:

    &#8226; User authentication

    &#8226; Authorizations

    &#8226; Data integrity

    &#8226; Privacy

    &#8226; Auditing and Logging

    Once you have established your security policy, use this guide to implement and enforce security for those products that you use within the SAP NetWeaver platform.

    Target Groups

    &#8226; Technical consultants

    &#8226; System administrators

    This document is not included as part of the Installation Guides, Configuration Guides, Technical Operation Manuals, or Upgrade Guides. Such guides are only relevant for a certain phase of the software life cycle, whereby the Security Guides provide information that is relevant for all time frames.
