Consolidate user-level role mapping
The authorization check for the authorization objects PS_RMPSORG and PS_RMPSOEH runs as follows following a user entry: The system determines the organizational unit to which the user is assigned. Starting from this organizational unit, the system creates a list of all organizational units that are superior to the organizational unit determined in the first step in the hierarchy. The system determines the set (M1) of all organizational objects that are assigned to these organizational units. The system determines the organizational unit to which the object to be processed is assigned (corresponds to the lead organizational unit in the attributes of the object to be processed). Starting from this lead organizational unit, the system creates a list of all organizational units that are superior to the determined organizational unit within the hierarchy. The system determines the set (M2) of all organizational objects assigned to these organizational units. The system forms the intersection (from M1 and M2) of the matching organizational objects of the user and the object to be processed. The system determines the organizational levels that match for the user and the object being processed. Once a matching organizational level is found, the system performs the authorization check for the other fields of the authorization object (e.g., type of object or activity); if the system cannot determine a common organizational level, processing is rejected. If the user is allowed to perform the requested activity, processing is allowed; otherwise, the system rejects processing.
In contrast to storing passwords in the form of hash values, the user ID and password are transmitted unencrypted during the login of the client to the application server. The Dynamic Information and Action Gateway (DIAG) protocol is used, which may look somewhat cryptic but does not represent encryption. In addition, there is no cryptographic authentication between the client and the application server. This applies not only to communication between the user interface and the application server, but also to communication between different SAP systems via Remote Function Call (RFC). So, if you want to protect yourself against the access of passwords during the transfer, you have to set up an encryption of this communication yourself.
