The delivery will be structured in the following phases:

  3. Remote analysis of the findings and creation of the report,
  4. Handover of the report with the findings,

You will need a NetWeaver Portal installation, the supported releases are 6.40 or 7.00. The language of the service will be English or German, the documentation however will be in English. Also we can only perform a white box test, a black box penetration analysis will not be performed during the delivery. Some customers however run a penetration test before performing the Security Optimization Service for NetWeaver Portal. As you might assume, the security of connected backend system cannot be checked during the implementation, only the http communication between the relevant systems. Also the security of custom codings cannot be checked during the delivery.
