3074781 - Multifactor Authentication (MFA) options for Netweaver AS and S/4 Hana on-premise.


This is an informational KBA on supported MFA options for your Netweaver on-premise Application server. The goal is just to make you aware of MFA options and point you to the Root documentation of the products involved.

By default, Neither Netweaver Abap or Netweaver Java support any MFA solutions directly.

Included in the SAP SSO 3.0 product there exists OTP functionality which includes MFA which can be deployed to the Netwever Java Stack. This provides MFA directly for the Netweaver Java stack and allows MFA for the Netweaver Abap Stack (indirectly). An SAP SSO 3.0 License is needed for all SAP Supported Netweaver MFA solutions.
