Communication Between SAP Systems and External (Non-SAP) SystemsLocate this document in the navigation structure

Use

The following section describes the security measures you need to take when you use RFC for communication between an SAP system and an external system (a system that is not based on ABAP or SAPJ2EE):

Note

When you use RFC for communication with an external (non-SAP) system, you can also implement the SAP Java Connector or the SAP .Net Connector for the conversion of data. However, there are no specific security requirements for these components, since they only perform internal system conversion functions.

Note

The additional security recommendations for communication with external systems in this section make particular reference to cases where an external system is used as a server (SAP calls the external system). If you use an external system as a client (the external system calls SAP), the appropriate SAP-specific security mechanisms are implemented on the SAP side.
