The Secure Area is where customer logon data (user name, password, server name etc.) for remote access are stored. On September 27, 2018, a revamped Secure Area following the SAP Fiori design principles has replaced the previous one. It is based on a different data structure, which made it impossible to migrate all existing data. After the go-live of the redesigned Secure Area, log files have been recreated in an extended format (with additional data, for instance the reason for remote access).
More information can be found in SAP Note 2694570.
Through its redesigned user interface, the new Secure Area will provide improved usability. Extended features will reduce potential errors in the remote connection process. Additionally, access to logon data is more precisely defined and, reflecting increased compliance requirements, closely monitored.
