Good news is that TechEd ’09 is just around the corner! In less than a week, Phoenix will start the series of SAP’s most important educational events with many workshops and lectures delivered by technical experts sharing their insider expertise. From the long list of educational sessions in the Security and Identity Management track, I want to highlight two hands-on sessions that my colleague Stefanie Garcia-Laule and I would like you invite you to. They specifically provide answers to the questions raised above:
- SIM262, Business Process Management and Security – Inextricably Intertwined: Join us in taking a deep-dive into the new security features of SAP’s BPM solution. You will learn how to avoid hard-coded credentials in your process definitions, how to configure strong authentication and Single Sign-On for enterprise services, and how to propagate the end user’s identity information throughout your process. Don’t miss to gather hands-on experience by implementing a real-world scenario (see figure 1) based on SAP NetWeaver Business Process Management and SAP ERP for security in Web services using industry standards like Web Services Security and SAML.

- SIM263, Service-Based Single Sign-On in an SAP and Microsoft Combined Environment: If you want to impress your boss by implementing a sound security strategy for identity federation, automated user account management and secure, interoperable Single Sign-On in your SAP and Microsoft combined environment, just come to this two hour hands-on session! You will have the unique opportunity to work with the latest releases of both companies’ products, e.g. SAP NetWeaver Identity Management or Microsoft Codename “Geneva Server”, the successor of Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS). By learning how to implement an end-to-end scenario, cross-platform Single Sign-On will no longer be an obstacle in your projects!
