From the Author
This guidebook is designed to help you set up the authorization environment in the customer system using the Profile Generator (PG). It explains what you need to know to perform this task and helps you use the standard tools provided with your system.
This book does not cover authorizations for add-on components or New Dimension products. It also does not cover Internet-related authorizations (encryption, authentication, and credit card security).
This guide refers to Release 4.6A/B of the SAP R/3 System. All screenshots are from Release 4.6A unless otherwise noted.
The structure of this guidebook matches the setup of the authorization concept, progressing from a new R/3 installation all the way to an upgrade. If you upgrade from an older release see chapter 14, Upgrade, for more information.

In the very first chapter the book introduces all concepts and possibilities about authorizations, and then explains any transaction and detail about each one.
I'm using SAP ECC 6.0, although the book covers 4.6A, it contains all essential concept and explanatory information needed to implment security.
This is a great book that together with the SAP Press book 'SAP Authorization System' is an essential to my understanding SAP authorizations. Note that I went to the SAP CA940 class on authorizations and the instructor didn't even mention these books (and for the several thousand dollars the class cost you'd think SAP would provide them for free.)
The only problem is the book is for 4.6A/B...and many customers are on 4.6C, and now heading for ECC6.
Special note: this book is available as a PDF...and if you shlep around on the internet long enough perhaps you could find a place to download it...
This is my second copy from Amazon that is missing the Chapter cover page and overview for every chapter.
SAP Authorization System covers the concept from a broaden perspective, and in fact refers to Authorizations made easy for detail. I would recommend both books.
