SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP)
The SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP) is an open and opinionated, framework of languages, libraries, and tools for building enterprise-grade services and applications.
It offers the following capabilities for security:
- Automatic authorization enforcement in the CAP-supported runtimes Node.js and Java
- No manual coding of permission checks required because it is automatically enforced during runtime
- Developers can still implement individual permission checks
SAP Cloud Platform Credential Store
SAP Cloud Platform Credential Store provides a secure repository for passwords and keys for applications that are running on SAP Cloud Platform. It enables applications to retrieve credentials and use them for authentication to external services, or to perform cryptographic operations and transport layer security (TLS) communication.
SAP Cloud Platform Connectivity and Destination Service
SAP Cloud Platform Connectivity provides two services, the Connectivity Service and the Destination Service. The Connectivity Service contains a connectivity proxy, which is used to access on-premise resources. The Destination Service can be used to retrieve and store the technical information about the target resource.
The Cloud Connector provides a secure tunnel between SAP Cloud Platform applications and on-premise systems to access relevant data. Existing on-premise data can be reused without exposing the entire internal landscape. The Cloud Connector itself will be installed on-premise, so you have full control over what happens in your on-premise SAP systems. Furthermore, the connection will be established from on-premise to SAP Cloud Platform. This offers the advantage that you do not have to open an additional incoming port.
The Cloud Connector also offers principal propagation. It manages the authentication process of an identity between systems.
SAP Cloud Platform Custom Domain
Custom Domain allows you to make your SAP Cloud Platform applications accessible via an individual domain, which is different from the default one (hana.ondemand.com). It also provides a self-service for managing the related certificates and trust. You can also integrate your own PKI solutions, so it is not limited to a specific trust center. Furthermore, you have full control over the private key and certificate lifecycle.
