ST02 Operating system overview
Why do you need SAP Basis admins in your company?
Meanwhile, there are other ways to build consensus. But, for the most part, the following three options have proven effective as a consensus mechanism: 1) Proof of Work 2) Proof of Stake 3) Proof of Importance The differences are presented in another blog post. How do blocks form in a blockchain? Each block will build irrevocably on an older block. If you were to remove the block, you would also have to remove all blocks above it, which would destroy the entire chain of blocks. Because each new block also contains information from its predecessor block. This is very important for understanding the immutability of a blockchain. If you were to manipulate a block afterwards, you would have to adjust all the blocks that follow. The effort would be so infinitely large and expensive that such a manipulation can practically not be implemented. You can think of it as this. A blockchain arises from the cryptographically linked blocks (puzzles) full of transactions (puzzle pieces) and therefore cannot be changed without destroying the entire blockchain. For this reason, a blockchain is seen as an immutable transaction history agreed upon by a decentralised community. A blockchain is programmed to work with each miner on the longest part of the blockchain, as this is obviously the chain in which most of the work has been invested.

In order to ensure the stability of the systems and to reduce the risk through proprietary developments, release and patch management must be implemented. Standardised procedures can help to introduce proprietary developments, such as test strategies or service level agreements (SLAs). It is also important to align the productivity setting of customer applications with the maintenance windows and RTO (Recovery-Time-Objective).

In addition to the consultants working in the individual SAP modules, there is a subarea here that is not directly apparent to many and whose activities seem to be quite opaque: SAP Basis. The smooth operation of SAP systems as the heart of many companies is ensured by the work of SAP Basis administrators.

A secure SAP system does not only include a good role concept. It is also necessary to check whether a user should (still) have a specific role. Regular verification of role assignment is called recertification. In this blog post, I'd like to introduce you to the need for recertifications and our own tool, EasyReCert. The need for recertification - scenarios: Example 1: The "apprentice problem" Imagine the following scenario: A new employee (e.g. apprenticeship or trainee) will go through various departments as part of his or her training and will work on various projects. Of course, an SAP User will be made available to your employee right at the beginning, which is equipped with appropriate roles. As each project and department passes, the employee repeatedly needs new permissions to meet the requirements. After the employee has successfully completed his or her induction and is now in a permanent position, he or she still has permissions that are not necessary to perform his or her duties. This violates the principle of "last privilede" and represents a potential security risk for your company. Example 2: The change of department The change of department is one scenario that probably occurs in every company. If a change of department does not automatically involve a complete reallocation of roles and the employee simply takes his old permissions with him, critical combinations of permissions can occur very quickly. For example, an employee who has permissions in accounts payable and accounts receivable violates the SoD ("Segregation of Duties") principle and poses a potential security risk to your company. Recertification as part of a revision: The two examples above show that a regular review of role allocation identifies potential security risks for your business and can be addressed.

SAP Basis refers to the administration of SAP system that includes activities like installation and configuration, load balancing, and performance of SAP applications running on Java stack and SAP ABAP. This includes the maintenance of different services related to database, operating system, application and web servers in SAP system landscape and stopping and starting the system. Here you can find some useful information about SAP Basis:

The advantage here is that no additional infrastructure is required; instead, the existing SAP system landscape is used for the entire control and execution without incurring a loss in performance.
