Is there any type of data security for the data sent from the app server to the SAP frontend?

Any encryption, etc? Not necessarily for the data stored in the DB but traffic to the SAPGui

    yes, this encryption between SAP GUI and SAP ABAP AS is acheived using the SAP SNC interface. The use of SNC for network security and encryption requires a library to be installed on both server and each worsktation where FrontEnd is installed. The library can be obtained from SAP software partners who provide SNC libraries, or if your SAP server is on Windows you can obtain the library from SAP themselves.

    Let me know if you need any more info.

      No, It is not using ASO. The use of ASO would not be appropriate for a server to acess the database. Most of the time both server and DB are in same secure network (e.g. in the data center) so there is no need to encrypt the connection between SAP server and DB. The use of ASO would be more appriate if you had a server running an Oracle DB and had client software which accesses the DB using sql-net. This is not applicable to SAP use or Oracle.
