Error analysis for authorizations (part 1)
Deleting versions
When using encryption mechanisms, be sure to prevent access to the personal security environment (PSE) files in the server's file system and database. To do this, create your own table permission group for the SSF_PSE_D table and restrict programmes from accessing the /sec directory in the file system. For details on securing key tables, see SAP Note 1485029.

In the simulation overview you will now receive all the information you already know from the authorisation maintenance in the transaction PFCG. The results are presented in a table where each row corresponds to a value interval of a permission. The Object column specifies the authorization object. Use the Active/Inactive column to determine if the permission has been disabled. The Maintenance Status and Update Status columns provide information about the status of the permission and how the permission has been updated. In the Permissions Comparison column, you can find out what exactly changed on the permission, such as whether a permission has been deleted or added anew, or whether the field values in the permission have been updated. You can find information about the field values in the Value Comparison column, which shows whether values have remained the same, whether they have been added or deleted. The values that were actually deleted and added can be seen in the columns from Value to Value (see figure next page). Please note that this is only a simulation. You must still perform the actual mixing process in the permission maintenance. Because reel mixing is not only a factor in upgrade work, the transaction SUPC also provides the ability to call this simulation mode. In the overview of the selected rolls you will find the button Mix which simulates the mixing process.
A concept for SAP authorizations prevents system errors and DSGVO violations
When accessing tables or views, the S_TABU_DIS authorization object is used to grant permission for a specific table permission group in the permission check. Note in this context also Tip 73 "Use authorization objects for table editing" and the S_TABU_NAM authorization object presented there. You can create table permission groups by using the transaction SE54 or by using the V_TBRG_54 care dialogue. They fall under the customising and can only contain four characters until SAP NetWeaver 7.31 SP 2. To create a table permission group, call the SE54 transaction and select Permissions Groups in the Edit Table/View pane. The Create/Modify button provides an overview of the existing table permission groups. For example, this way you can also change the name of a table permission group. In the Table Rights Group overview, click the New Entries button to create a new table permissions group. Give a name for your permission group and a matching name. After you have saved the new entries, your custom table permission group is created.

The goal of an authorization concept is to provide each user with the appropriate authorizations in the system individually for their tasks according to a previously defined rule. For this purpose, an authorization concept must be defined as the foundation for efficient authorization assignment. In this way, each employee is given system access through the role-specific assignment of authorizations according to his or her tasks. On the one hand, this protects sensitive information and, on the other, prevents damage caused by incorrect use of data.

Authorizations can also be assigned via "Shortcut for SAP systems".

Both transactions have the same start properties, but are used for different purposes and display different data.

Use a test implementation in the SNOTE transaction to identify additional SAP hints that are required for a security advisory and may also contain functional changes.
