Enable HTTPS service in SAP.

Hi Gurus,

We have a requirement to enable https service on ABAP and Java SAP servers in our landscape.

I have few queries please correct me if i am wrong.

1. Need to setup cryptographic libraries to activate https.

2. how to perform certification signing is it from SAP , third party or self signed please guide me on this part.

3. Need to setup few parameters in instance profile and then restart the server and create https service from smicm and activate the service it will be in green tick.

4. How to select the port number for https , is it via netstat -na | grep " any unusable port"

is it this way please guide me.

Really appreciate your help on this part.

Thanks

Pradeep.

    Hello,

    1) Yes

    2) You can use a self signed certificate that is created automatically, it is not obligatory to use your own certificates. But of course in case it's productive system it is recommended to use a trusted CA to sign certificate.

    3) You should maintain the HTTPS settings directly in the system profile.

    4) Usually the HTTPS is running on port 443 (and HTTP is running on port 80). So I'd recommend to use the same schema for your SAP system.

    Read the blog where it's described how to enable HTTPS (third link from Google):
