Activating HTTPS in SAP system

Activating HTTPS in SAP system:

In Latest version of SAP system we do not need any SAPCRYPTOLIB file and profile parameters, why because it will come by default.

1. Download the SAPCRYPTOLIB, extract the sar file and place it into the

$DIR_EXECUTABLE directory, we can find this path in Tx – AL11

(eg : D:\usr\sap\SID\DVEBMGS05\exe)

Note 397175 describes the prerequisites for downloading the library.

2. Set the Environmental Variable in the User Variables and place ticket got from SAPCRYPTOLIB

in the below directory,


3. Maintain the below parameters in the Instance Profile,


4. Goto SMICM and Select E symbol


5. Select checkbox https and goto Service –> Activate


7. Https is activated,


Thank You..

      I'm afraid your information here is rather badly out-of-date, inaccurate, and/or misleading. There is generally not much need to download SAPCRYPTOLIB anymore, for instance, as it is included with the latest kernels and their patches. So, manually downloading it and putting it in your kernel directory has the potential of even downgrading it, or providing a mismatched version by mistake. Additionally, the environment variable SECUDIR no longer needs to be set -- this is all handled in the instance or default profile now. Speaking of which, many of the parameters you mention for the profile are automatically set during installation of the system (granted, that was not always the case), and there's not much point in messing with those.

      And you don't even mention the one profile parameter that you do need to manually set! Nowhere do you mention setting PROT=HTTPS in your icm/server_port_x settings (and why do you need to set PROT=SMTP when your goal is to enable HTTPS?).

      Also, why are you setting a parameter with the effect of downgrading your RSA key length?
