Configuring Signet Data Component for SCF
These steps are required for Taulia Supply Chain Finance.

Setting Up the Secure Certificate (Taulia SSF)
To establish secure communication between and SAP,  create a Taulia-specific SSF application. After the entry in SSFA has been entered and saved, it creates a node in the SAP Trust Manager (transaction STRUST). This node is not available unless the SSFA entry has been created.

To establish the Taulia SSF Application in SAP

  1. Manually add an entry for the TAUCIG application in the table SSFAPPLIC. Values are provided below.
  2. Add the table entry into a transport request to facilitate implementation on your ERP landscape.

If the configuration does not match the table, the SAP-specific SSF feature may not work correctly, or you may be unable to perform subsequent configurations.

Taulia Digital Signature


Configuring the SSF
After the Taulia SSF Application has been established, the parameters for the SSF application must be created, in order for SAP to securely communicate with the Taulia Application. 

A PSE (.pse) file is a Personal Security Environment file that is stored in the file system of the SAP instance. The Private Address Book and SSF Profile Name fields refer to that file name. The entry in the "node" in the Trust Center is the representation of this file in the Trust Center.

To configure the Taulia SSF application

  1. Access the configuration screen through the SSFA transaction.
  2. If you have not already done so, create a certificate through the SAP process using the SAPGENPSE utility. For more information about this utility, see the Creating a PSE for the Server Using SAPGENPSE documentation from SAP. The certificate must be created using RSA 2048-bit key length.
  3. After you upload the certificate, return to the SSFA transaction and specify the Private Address Book and SSF Profile name. This creates the link between the SSF configuration and the certificate.
  4. Specify the following values in the Application-Specific SSF Parameters exactly as shown, with the exception of the Security Product field, as your security product may vary:

Fields and Options 

Entry

SAPSECULLIB
(Alternately, you can use your own security product.)

Checked This option only applies to SAPSECULIB. Do not select this check box if you use a different security product.

 
Maintaining the Certificate
The SAP Trust Manager can perform the following certificate maintenance functions:

  • Generating key pairs
  • Creating certificate requests to be signed by a certification authority (CA)
  • Maintaining the list of trusted CAs that the server accepts 

All the data in the certificate (for example, Owner or Issuer) is generated based on your selected values. You must create the certificate using the RSA algorithm with a ley length of 2048. For more information, see the Creating a PSE for the Server Using SAPGENPSE documentation from SAP. 

To access the utility to maintain a certificate in the Trust Manager

  • Access the STRUST transaction

The digital signature tool is standard SAP functionality for managing certificates and creating personal security environments. For more information, see the SAP PSE Documentation

Exporting the Certificate
In order to be able to import your certificate into the Taulia Platform, you must first export it from the Trust Manager in the SAP Add-on. 

To export a certificate from the SAP Trust Manager complete the below steps:

  1. In the SSF Taulia Digital Signature node that you created in SAP Trust Manager, select the signature for the certificate. See SCF Configuring the Taulia SSF Application for information on how to create the node. 
  2. Select the owner of the certificate.
  3. Click Export.
  4. Select Base64 as the file format.
  5. Enter the location and the file name where you want to export the certificate. 
  6. Confirm the setting and download the certificate. 


Uninstalling the add-on
See the SAP Note 2011192 for instructions about how to uninstall the add-on.

Defining authorizations
After you install the Taulia add-on component, you must define the required authorization for users. The authorizations allow the configured users to send and receive information for transactions to Taulia. To define the required authorizations, use the authorization objects, class, and program that Taulia provides. You must use the following out-of-the-box authorization objects for SAP ERP users.
Taulia provides the following authorization objects and classes:
ACIS: Authorization object class

Configuring the SAP Cloud Connector
Connect SAP Integration Suite, managed gateway with your SAP ERP using SAP Cloud Connector.
The Cloud Connector serves as the link between the SAP Cloud Platform and existing on-premise systems; it runs as an on-premise agent in a secured network and acts as a reverse invoke proxy between the on premise network and SAP Cloud Platform. Due to its reverse invoke proxy support, you don't need to configure the on-premise firewall to allow external access from the cloud to internal systems.


New installation and configuration
You must install and configure cloud connector for test and production environments. For information on how to install and configure cloud connector, see Cloud Connector. Add the new subaccounts and configure the cloud connector to connect to SAP ERP.
For high availability, you must configure multiple subaccounts
When creating subaccounts for cloud connector, enter the following information:
