Since April 9th, SAP NetWeaver Single Sign-On 2.0 is available for Ramp-Up.
REALTECH has already performed lots of succcessful implementations with SAP NetWeaver SSO 1.0 and is SAP Ramp-Up Partner for the new Release.
Our first Ramp-Up projects have already started and meet the customers expectations! If you’re interested in further details please do not hesitate to contact us.
One main feature of the new version is the SPNEGO (Simple and Protected GSSAPI Negotiation Mechanism) support for the ABAP world. SPNEGO for ABAP allows Web-based SSO access to the SAP NetWeaver application server ABAP and is supported with SAP NetWeaver release 7.40, as well as SAP NetWeaver 7.31, support package 7. Down-port for earlier releases is currently in progress.
The product comes with a number of new features like:
- Enhanced platform support (e.g. SAP now supports Windows 8)
- Tighter integration of SAP NetWeaver Single Sign-On into the overall SAP NetWeaver environment, which leads to reduced operating costs
- Integration with SAP NetWeaver Identity Management and the Identity Provider component
- Additional language support
In addition FIPS 140-2 certification is in process for NW SSO 2.0 to ensure tested security standards for the solution’s cryptographic module. This certification covers basic security requirements for production-grade components.
