    global portal

    what means a global portal for you? Internet, Intranet, company portal? If it is a CP, the employees want to access personal data? In this case, you'll go with:

    1. Anonymous to display general data

    2. Logon so that the users can interact with the SAP system

    frontend for SRM

    As a frontend for SRM, your suppliers may need access to anonymous information, but certainly will also need to log on to the portal. You can use the same approach as above. You could have a portal that needs a logon (userID, certificate) to ensure that only authorized persons can access the portal.

    But this depends on your end-users and on what you really want and need to publish.

    The authentication type would depend on the kind of security you want to implement. The "Anonymous Logon" method allows the user to access the system without providing any kind of authentication. You might want to check with the business and security teams about what data can be exposed anonymously and which sections need explicit user authentication.

    You may then define some content as anonymous and allow the user to browse for it. Later if the user wishes to conduct any transaction with the system, user id and password would be required. I sugest that you have a look at here to understand the authentication mechanisms
