To encrypt data in backups and files, Veeam Agent employs a symmetric key encryption algorithm.
The symmetric, or single-key encryption algorithm, uses a single, common secret key to encrypt and decrypt data on the trusted side. To restore encrypted data, you must have the same secret key. Users who do not have the secret key cannot decrypt data and get access to it.
Veeam Agent relies on a hierarchical encryption scheme. Each layer in the hierarchy encrypts the layer below with a key of specific type.
