SAP NetWeaver Application Server Add-on for Code Vulnerability
The following list explains the steps in the order they are performed by SPAM: PROLOGUE This step will check if you are eligible to play Support Packages. CHECK_REQUIREMENTS In this step, different requirements for inserting are checked, e.g. the login of the transport control programme tp to your system. DISASSEMBLE In this step, the data files are unpacked from the corresponding EPS packages and placed in the transport directory. ADD_TO_BUFFER In this step, the queue is placed in the transport buffer of your system. TEST_IMPORT This step checks whether there are any objects that are overridden during the commit and are in unreleased tasks. IMPORT_OBJECT_LIST In this step, the object lists for the support packages that are in the queue are fed into the system. OBJECTS_LOCKED_? This step checks to see if there are any objects that are overwritten during the commit and that are in unreleased jobs. SCHEDULE_RDDIMPDP In this step the transport daemon (programme RDDIMPDP) is planned. ADDON_CONFLICTS_? This step checks to see if there are conflicts between objects in the queue and add-ons installed. SPDD_SPAU_CHECK This step will check if a modification match (transactions SPDD/SPAU) is necessary. DDIC_IMPORT In this step, all ABAP Dictionary objects of the queue are imported. AUTO_MOD_SPDD This step checks whether modifications to ABAP Dictionary objects can be adjusted automatically. RUN_SPDD_? This step prompts you to customise your modifications to ABAP Dictionary objects by calling the transaction SPDD. IMPORT_PROPER In this step, all repository objects and table entries are fed. Then actions such as distribution, implementation, activation and generation take place. AUTO_MOD_SPAU This step checks whether modifications can be adjusted automatically. RUN_SPAU_?
This enhances the capabilities of SAP HANA base administrators and increases the level of service they should provide. Your Basis team can more easily fine-tune your data replication strategy to meet demanding disaster recovery and high availability standards.
Two ways to use Security Automation
In this article on SAP Security Automation I would like to take a look at the future of automated processes in the SAP Security area. For many companies, the topic of security automation still offers a lot of potential in terms of time savings and process optimisation. Our daily work environment offers numerous tasks that could be handled excellently automatically. For this reason, in this article I present two of the possibilities that already exist in the broad area of security automation. Security Automation via SAP Security Check The first option of Security Automation, which I want to introduce here, is the automatic verification of the existing permissions. Have you ever wondered who has critical permissions in your SAP system? And have you ever tried to do this by hand? Depending on the level of expertise and experience of the privilege administrator, this is a time-consuming work. If an audit is also announced and the SAP system is to be checked for critical permissions and segregation of duties, then it is very difficult to meet all requirements and secure the eligibility landscape in this respect. For this reason, various vendors provide solutions to automate the verification of the permission system with regard to critical permissions and segregation of duties using tool support. This allows permission administrators to use their valuable time to correct the errors rather than just looking for them. For example, we use a tool that runs through the verification of over 250 rules. We then get an evaluation of which rules are violated and which points are correct. A simple example of such rules is the use of the SAP_ALL profile. Another would be to grant the jump permission in debugging (S_DEVELOP permission object with the ACTVT = 02 field). These are two relatively simple examples of Security Check tools' rulebook. In addition, queries are also made, which are located in the field of Segregation of Duties. Using this tool allowed us to move from manual validation of critical permissions to an automatic process.
Understanding the structure and functioning of the system is especially important for IT administration. It is not for nothing that "SAP Basis Administrator" is a separate professional field. On the page www.sap-corner.de you will find useful information on this topic.
Remove weak password hashes from the system: Only updating the profile parameter does not provide you with the necessary security. There are still many weak hash values in your database that can be used to attack your system. These must be completely removed from the database. To do this, use the report CLEANUP_PASSWORD_HASH_VALUES. To do this, call the transaction SA38 and enter the name of the report in the input field. Run or F8 executes the programme and cleans your database Report CLEANUP_PASSWORD_HASH_VALUES This programme removes the outdated hash values across all clients.

"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes it easier and quicker to complete a number of SAP basis tasks.
Many companies that use or would like to use an SAP Basis system seek advice from external service providers or completely outsource the administration of the system.
