    You can use SSL for encryption where the SAP Web AS is either the server or the client component for the connection, such as:

    . Users connect to the SAP Web AS using their Web browser.

    . The SAP Web AS connects to another SAP Web AS.

    . The SAP Web AS connects to another Web server.

    SSL is supported in all these cases.

    For connections that use SAP protocols (RFC, DIAG), you can also use SNC on

    the SAP Web AS.

    SNC requires the use of an external security product to perform the encryption

    Similar to SNC, for SSL, the SAP Web AS uses the SAP Cryptographic Library

    to perform the cryptographic functions.

    However, for SNC, you can alternatively use a partner product. For SSL, you must

    use the SAP Cryptographic Library.

    Thanks
