Security Library Recommendations

Dear Gurus,

I would like to know what books are in your SAP Security library and why they are useful. As with most things, I am always searching for new insight/knowledge to better develop my understanding of subject areas I would like to specialize in. I noticed that besides ADM940 (which I took several years ago), there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of SAP Security books on hand, particularly on the newer topics of security such as addressing the Java stack, BI/SRM/CRM security, modern design methodologies, etc. Most either regurgitate the basics of ABAP security (i.e. plug random transaction codes to roles in PFCG) or aim to be "cookbooks" of Security Q/A, which are very limited in their usefulness and varies in their accuracy.

What, if any, books would you recommend that any modern-day Security consultant shouldn't be without? Very interested in any recommendations people might be able to bring up!

    • Hi Jörg,

      Thanks for the info - I missed the part about you still reading it, sorry!

      When you have finished it, I would be interested to know your thoughts. Decent books being available can only be a good thing to supplement the standard documentation.

    I pinged two authors of recent SAP-Press books on security to respond to you directly.

      Julius, those books look quite interesting. I think the second one (Authorizations in SAP Software: Design and Configuration) seems to me more in line with what I had in mind. Seeing the lack of replies to this thread, I am proceeding to mark it as answered. Thanks again for your help and contribution.
