NWBC - SSO to ABAP system

Dear Gurus,

We have decided to use NWBC 3.0, we would like to connect it to ABAP system.

In SAPGUI we are using SNC for sso, how do we configure sso with NWBC to ABAP system ?

what are the options ?

Please advise,

Hi Tim,

> Dimitry

You need to deploy/use a certificate authority (CA) (or a full PKI) so that users have certificates issued to them, and available to browser. It is common for this kind of authentication to involve each user having a smart card to store their certificate. The user certificate would then be used to identify the user to the SAP system, using configuration in the ABAP stack. You can find info on setup of certificate authentication in SAP documentation. It is not easy, and can be very expensive. Most companies that I know don't do this, instead they install a Java stack somewhere and use Kerberos authentication, since there is no additional infrastructure required for using your Active Directory domain for authentication to SAP.
