User authentication is usually performed by entering a user name and password. This information is called user credentials and should only be known to the user, so that no third party can gain access to the system under a false identity. This post explains how a user's password protection can be circumvented and how to prevent it. SAP system legacy data The login data of a user, including password, are saved in the USR02 database table. However, the password is not in plain text, but encrypted as a hash value. For each user there are not only one but up to three generated password hashes. Different algorithms are used to calculate these values, but only the Salted SHA1 can be considered sufficiently safe. Table deduction USR02 The secure password hash is located in the fifth column of the pictured table deduction with the heading Password hash value. The corresponding data field in the column is called PWDSALTEDHASH. Weak Password Hash Risks You have a good and working permission concept that ensures that no processes or data can be manipulated or stolen. A potential attacker now has the ability to read out your database with the password hashes. The hash values are calculated using password crackers, which are available on the Internet at home, and the attacker now has a long list of user credentials. To damage your system, the user will now search for the appropriate permissions and perform the attack under a false identity. Identifying the actual attacker is virtually impossible. Check if your system is vulnerable too Your system generates the weak hash values if the login/password_downwards_compatibility profile parameter has an unequal value of 0.
Since innovations through IoT (Internet of Things) or big data scenarios not only affect the SAP basis, but also highlight products and services for customers of their own company, the role of the SAP basis in relation to these scenarios and services must be clearly defined. In general, the SAP basis sees its responsibility here in the connectivity to the corporate network or the enterprise systems, which lie in the responsibility of the SAP basis. The support of the applications, based on the technologies as well as the associated services, is the responsibility of the respective department that offers this service. A SAP-based support service must be agreed and regulated during the conception.

SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system. Here you can find some useful information about SAP Basis: www.sap-corner.de.
It is essential to define the role to be played within the company. STEP 4: DETERMINATION OF THE TARGET GROUP In this step, the target group of the service is defined and described in detail, e.g. by means of a letter. It will also discuss future target groups which may be of interest in the future. By defining a target group within a company, the SAP basis decides for whom the services and IT products should be delivered. It also makes sense to identify and describe future target groups (e.g. specialist areas) within the framework of a transformation of the SAP basis. STEP 5: POSITIONING This step will position the service on the market and also position the competitors in the relevant segment.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" simplifies tasks in the area of the SAP basis and complements missing functions of the standard.
Among other things, it determines which application server a user logs on to in order to distribute the workload (load balancing).
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
