SAP NetWeaver AS - Network Security (BC-SNC)[1]

BC-SNC protects data that is exchanged between distributed SAP NetWeaver components and an integrated external security system, and enables the use of cryptography and smart cards to authenticate users. The external security system can provide strong authentication, data integrity, and data confidentiality services. An SAP NetWeaver system administrator can adjust the level of protection by setting SAP NetWeaver profile parameters for BC-SNC.
