Security Documentation Updates for SPS 10
New and updated security documentation is now available for SAP HANA SPS 10 on SAP Help Portal.
You’ll find all the details in the What’s New in the SAP HANA Platform. Here are some of the highlights:
SAP HANA cockpit
The SAP HANA cockpit now has two new security-related tile catalogs: one for user management and one for certficate management. Both catalogs have a link to the documentation, available directly in the cockpit.
Unified certificate handling
The X.509 client certificates required for securing external JDBC/ODBC communication channels, as well as several user authentication mechansims (SAML, X.509 certificates, logon tickets), can now be stored directly in the SAP HANA database. In-database certificate management is documented in a new section in the SAP HANA Security Guide.
Secure internal communication
Internal communication channels are now secured using a simple public-key infrastructure (PKI) that is set up during installation. In particular, this mechanism is used to secure communication between tenant databases in a system configured for high isolation. The Secure Internal Communication section of the SAP HANA Security Guide has been comprehensively updated.
SQL-based analytic privileges
SQL-based analytic privileges have been available for some time, but they are now supported by both the SAP HANA Web-based Developer Workbench and the SAP HANA studio. Both versions of the SAP HANA Developer Guide (for Web Workbench and for studio) contain updated information.
