What is the difference between SAP SSO and Netweaver SSO?

We are interested in deploying SSO across our enterprise and am trying to find the prerequisites and how to download and install the solution. We are currently on ERP 6.0 w/ ehp6 SP01 which is far behind.

I thought I was needing SP15 at minimum to install SSO 3.0, however, I'm also reading about using SSO with Netweaver.

I only want to use SSO with our A/D servers which is how our other applications are linked. Is anyone familiar with what SAP Notes I should start with to determine how to proceed with install.

    If you only want SSO using Logon Pad, you can use Microsoft Windows Kerberos or NTLM authentication.

    This is very simple to deploy, with no cost. Though SAP recommends to use Netweaver SSO Product, this is cost effective solution for only using SAP GUI.

    Check Below Notes

    Hi Michael,

    This is only a product naming difference. Let me give you some historical background:

    Currently the name of the product is SAP Single Sign-On 3.0.

    SAP NetWeaver Single Sign-On was the name of the 1.0 version. From version 2.0 onwards the name of the product changed to SAP Single Sign-On.

    The SAP Help page for SAP Single Sign-On contains all documents necessary to implement the product and better understand its features:
