The system landscape of companies grows rapidly. At the same time, the number of users increases as in heterogeneous system landscapes one employee often uses several user IDs for different systems. This leads to high maintenance and support effort as well as higher total cost of ownership and security risks. A possible solution to this situation could be Single Sign On (SSO). The name already tells all about SSO: the user has to sign on only once. This means he must remember only one user name and one password. This paper describes the setup of SSO for SAP NetWeaver Application Server based on the Kerberos protocol.
