We would like to inform you all that due to stricter security settings, IE 8 on Windows XP users will not be able to access SCN.
Currently members can browse SCN via both a http and https protocol.
Once logged in, the protocol is always set to https, and due to requirements, users of IE 8 on Windows XP are not able to log-in.
IT security requests that all SAP platforms adjust their settings for https communications in order to prevent attacks.
As a result, IE 8 on Windows XP users will not be able to access SCN via the https protocol (at all).
For those members who would like to continue working on Windows XP, we advise that alternative browsers will be used.
Please note that these settings will apply by the end of this month.
