SIM102 Security for Business Process-centric Applications with SAP
The deployment of applications for management of business processes and the application of service-oriented architecture concepts in enterprise environments calls for an evolution to IT security. For example, SAP's business process management (BPM) applications follow business process workflows and frequently work across several functional enterprise application areas. To be secure, BPM applications must apply not only to technical security functionality, but also to security design principles, organizational and administrative control measures, enforcing compliance, accountability, separation of duty, and privilege principles. This session offers an introduction to the security functionality supported for applications, using SAP NetWeaver as a technology backbone, and a higher level systematic approach to use for selecting the technical security functionality, available for SAP applications, for deployment in enterprise application scenarios.
