SAP (In)Security

Mariano Nuñez Di Croce


How to secure an SAP system? How to perform a security assessment of an SAP system? These are two questions that this course will answer.

SAP security is still an unexplored world for many security professionals. In this course you will learn the different security aspects of this giant, covering from the basics steps to high-profile attacks and defenses. We will cover the full landscape, from the security of the core operating systems and the database servers up to the security at the SAP layer itself: the Transport System, User Management and Administration, Communication Security, Interface Security, Application Security (SAPRouter, Web Dispatcher, ITS, ICM, SNC, SSL), Logs and Auditing, Intrusion Detection.

Through many hands-on exercises, you will learn to use different SAP security products to secure your SAP deployments, as well as novel techniques and tools to perform assessments on these systems.

Even more, we will master you in using sapyto, the opensource SAP Penetration Testing Framework. You will learn how to use it, configure it and extend its functionality developing your own plugins. Furthermore, a special sapyto (Training_Edition) will be used and provided, with many exciting extra features.
