Logon application - SSO base on certificate

Dear all,

currently we use the bundle application (incl. standard logon application) for authentication on SAP Enterprise Portal. The Portal is connected to ERP via SSO.

The problem is, that our user have to change their Portal passwords regularly and they often don't remember them.

It would be great to have the logon application being able to logon via SSO (i.e. SAML2) to the SAP Enterprise Portal based on logon information provided via certificate on the mobile device for example.

The main goal is to avoid username/password authentication and password change completely on mobiles.

Rollout of certificates on the devices can easily be done via MDM.

Kind regards,

Armin Hofius

Hi Armin

So far, we have not been able to make it work in the mobile app, but of course, we are eager to find a solution for it.

What MDM are you currently using?   

If you want, we could have a meeting next week where you can show us how the certificates are being distributed to the mobile devices and we discuss the possibilities.  Just let us know your availability and we will schedule a goto-meeting session accordingly.

Thanks and kind regards,


We would love to use client certificates for authentication at the SAP backend as well.
