SAP Mobility by using PhoneGap and security issues.


Dear Experts,

Our management decide to go with Sencha/jQuery and PhoneGap for many valid reasons.

but the main concern is the security issues.

Our SAP servers behind a firewall and it is not acceptable to access it directly. VPN was forbidden after virus attack.

So, i am planing to do the following.

We have a server that we can access it from the internet.

We will let the mobile apps to connect "Middleware" hosted in that server over https protocol. and that "Middleware" will communicate with SAP servers to fetch/post all required data.

It looks like this: Mobile Apps <-- > "Middleware" < --> SAP ECC

Now, the "Middleware" can be costume web application or any thing else.

But i want something more advanced . so, the mobile apps will communicate and authenticate via it.

What did you think experts?
