Managing standard encryption configuration options
The following table describes the three encryption-related configuration options for the standard encryption that can exist on a NetBackup client.
Ensure that the options are set to the appropriate values for your client.
Table: Three encryption-related configuration options
Defines the encryption options on NetBackup clients. The possible values for option follow:
Specifies that the client does not permit encrypted backups. If the server requests an encrypted backup, it is considered an error.
(the default value) Specifies that the client allows either encrypted or unencrypted backups.
Specifies that the client requires encrypted backups. If the server requests an unencrypted backup, it is considered an error.
Neither standard encryption nor legacy encryption is configured on the client.
Specifies that you want to use the cipher-based 128-bit encryption or 256-bit encryption. This option is the default value if standard encryption is configured on the client.
Specifies that you want to use the legacy-based encryption, with 40-bit DES or 56-bit DES.
Defines the cipher type to use. It can be set to any of the following option values.
128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard. This is the default value.
Two Key Triple DES
256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard
