New features & improvements

Main feature(s)

SIEM Integration

The smarterSec Security Platform scan results can now be integrated into SIEM- systems (supporting CEF & LEEF), closing the gap between the IT landscape and the SAP landscape

  • Specify a scenario or a delta of two scenarios to be fed into a SIEM-system
  • Create CEF and/or LEEF-files to import into your SIEM (supporting ArcSight, QRadar Splunk, etc.)

Minor feature(s)

Encrypted Communication

  • Provide encrypted communication between SAP NetWeaver Systems and the smarterSec Security Platform
  • Using SAP SNC for logon (based on user name and password)
  • Must have item from the category “eat you own dogfood”!

Management of Scenarios

  • Now it is possible to save your test case selections in scenarios and reuse them for repeated scans
  • Differentiate between public (unique, for everyone) and private scenarios (just for you)
  • Can be used to document external standards like “DSAG-Prüfleitfaden” (German SAP user group test guide) or to save your individual selection of test for a demo

Search for Test Cases

  • When creating a scan, you can search by test case name (or test case number) to find matching tests (try with SAP_ALL)

New user role

  • User role “Editor” provided in addition to “user” and “admin”
  • Editor users are allowed to maintain custom specific values for policies and test case check values e.g. adjust the requirement for default password length


New Test Cases

  • “Nearly SAP_ALL”: new test case reporting all users that are having a de-facto SAP_ALL, based on the ratio of their assigned authorizations. By default having more than 90% of all authorizations is regarded SAP_ALL (configurable threshold)
  • Split up “Executable report without authorization group” into namespaces for SAP/3rd-party/customer

Test Case Documentation
