SAP Enterprise Portal 6.0 - Single Sign On

Reddgum asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-08
I am completely new to SAP. My bread & butter is mostly within Windows application and system engineering / architecture, however I don't know tons about cross platform authentication options.

We have been working with SAP's EP 6.0 (J2EE) on HPUX running Apache web server - there's a desire for Single Sign On - SSO - from a Windows Active Directory network. Has anyone done something like this, and if so, which method or approach did you use?

Info: Large corporate WAN. LDAP and Kerberos available.

Watch Question

SAP is compatible out of the box with Kerberos.  We are implementing that now.


And you're using the newer Enterprise Portal 6.0 on a HPUX platform?

We are using an HPUX platform (11i), but we're implementing SSO first on the Enterprise 4.7 R/3 system, the EP will come later but I understand it works exactly the same way.
