SAP Gateway uses the secure storage component of the SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP (AS ABAP). The secure storage component allows the encrypted storage of sensitive data that SAP Gateway requires when logging on to other SAP systems.
The database in AS ABAP stores passwords for the following:
CCMS (Generic Request and Message Generator)
Data deployed for the SAP Gateway components and default content
Content of reports for scheduled and monitored activities
Data for roles and users
