|Secure Store and Forward (BC-SEC)|
An interface that allows the SAP system to protect data and documents using digital signatures and encryption.
The data is protected even if it leaves the SAP system. It can be saved independently on data carriers or transmitted over communication paths without the protection being affected.
The protection is provided using an external security product that is available to the SAP system using the Secure Store and Forward (SSF) interface. The SSF interface makes use of Public-Key Cryptographic Standards (PKCS).
