SAP Kerberos Based Single Sign On to Application Server ABAP
The SAP Single Sign-On product offers support for Kerberos/SPNEGO. You can use Kerberos authentication tokens to easily implement a single sign-on solution for your SAP systems. This requires little implementation effort, but provides a considerable simplification to your employees’ authentication processes. Using Kerberos technology via SNC or SPNEGO, a trust relationship is established between the user’s front end (SAP GUI for Windows or a web browser, for example) and the back-end Application Server ABAP or Java.
Employees log in once when they start their computers by signing on to their Windows domain. Any subsequent authentication processes are left to a Kerberos token mechanism provided by SAP Single Sign-On and based on Microsoft Active Directory. No additional server is required in this scenario. Working on the front-end software, the user experiences streamlined, easy accessibility.
