SX3200, PGP cryptography from ABAP

General Comments Off on SX3200, PGP cryptography from ABAP

PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) is another type of public key cryptography based on PGP algorithms. When PGP is used to encrypt clear text, that text is compressed. Data compression saves disk space, transmission times and, most importantly, strengthens cryptographic security since most cryptanalysis techniques look for patterns present in clear text to break encryption. Compression reduces those patterns in clear text, greatly increasing resistance to cryptanalysis.

The latest update of the SX3200 enables PGP-type public and private key operations, directly using the SAP BC-SEC SSF interface.

Encryption / decryption with PGP is currently in use in inter-entity message exchange for enhanced message protection.


Its use from ABAP avoids the use of platforms with PI / PO.

In the following video you can see the demonstration.
