Quest Authentication Services Single Sign-on for SAP

The Authentication Services and SAP SNC Solution provides a greatly increased level of security, identity integration, centralized auditing, data integrity and security, and user experience. The integration of Unix and Linux hosts with Active Directory through Authentication Services allows SAP client and servers to use the capabilities of the SAP SNC interface to use a common security and authentication infrastructure and to fully leverage the ability of Windows XP and Windows Professional desktops to provide a secure authentication token in the form of a Kerberos ticket, while retaining the benefits of continued deployment of SAP R/3 server solutions on Unix hosts.
