Data is encrypted with the standard DES encryption algorithm. For more information, see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.security.cryptography.des(v=vs.110).aspx.

ProtectedData
CurrentUser

Data is encrypted with the standard ProtectedData mechanism. Data can be decrypted only by the user who encrypted it. For more information, see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2fh8203k(v=vs.110).aspx.

ProtectedData
LocalMachine

Data is encrypted with the standard ProtectedData mechanism. Data can be decrypted only on the machine where it was encrypted. For more information, see https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2fh8203k(v=vs.110).aspx.

To let Veeam Agent Configurator know which method you used for data encryption, you must specify the method type in the CryptType parameter. For example, if you have encrypted the user password using the DES algorithm, you must define value 20 in the CryptType parameter:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<JobInfo CryptType="20">
    …
</JobInfo>
