Definition

A digital envelope is a secure "data wrapper" that provides privacy protection for a data packet. It protects the contents of the data packet from being viewed by anyone other than the intended recipient.

Use

You can use digital envelopes when storing or sending confidential data.

Integration

You must have SAP NetWeaver Single Sign-On or an external security product with the SAP System to be able to use digital envelopes. The security product must be certified by SAP and it must support the PKCS#7 standard data format and X.509 public-key certificates.
