Primer into SAP Penetration testing & OWASP SAPkiln

SAP, a key player in global commerce, serves top companies worldwide. However, SAP systems are vulnerable to cyber-attacks, risking financial loss, IP theft, and more. Regular security assessments, like penetration testing, are crucial for mitigation. Yet, there's a shortage of skilled professionals for this. Open-source tools are limited, hindering effective vulnerability identification. This training aims to familiarize the audience with SAP security testing and covers SAP Logon/GUI, a seemingly complex aspect. The presenter introduces "OWASP SAPKiln," an open-source GUI tool simplifying security checks using SAP Logon/GUI. It automates over 70 checks via SAP scripting, aiding security researchers in safeguarding SAP systems.
