SAP HANA uses client certificates to secure both network communication channels and the user authentication mechanisms SAML and JWT.
On-premise, they can be stored in the file system and database. For the SAP HANA service, file-based certificates are managed by SAP so for certificate management, we are only concerned with database-based certificate management.
In the video tutorial below, we show you how to configure certificates and certificate collections for the Cloud Foundry environment.
Certificate management for the SAP Cloud Platform, SAP HANA Service works the same as for a regular on-premise SAP HANA with certificates and certificates collections with some restrictions.
For Neo, currently on SAP HANA 1.0 SPS 12, this works slightly different in the user interface –due mainly to a different SAP HANA cockpit release– but in concept, it is the same idea.
