Supported Encryption Methods

In this article

    Veeam Agent Configurator supports the following methods for data encryption and decryption:

    Encryption method

    Method code

    Description

    None

    0

    During job configuration import, Veeam Agent Configurator ignores encrypted data.

    Base64 encoding

    10

    Default value at Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows configuration export.

    Data is encoded in the Base64 format. If you want to change credentials after configuration export, you can encode user name and password into Base64 strings and insert the strings into the configuration file.

    DES

    20

    Data is encrypted with the standard DES encryption algorithm. For more information, see this Microsoft article.

    ProtectedData
    CurrentUser

    30

    Data is encrypted with the standard ProtectedData mechanism. Data can be decrypted only by the user who encrypted it. For more information, see this Microsoft article.

    ProtectedData
    LocalMachine

    31

    Data is encrypted with the standard ProtectedData mechanism. Data can be decrypted only on the machine where it was encrypted. For more information, see this Microsoft article.

    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:

    <ExecutionResult>
    <JobInfo ConfigId='f5bb9cd2-9b7d-4bb3-9c72-435cec24420c' CryptType="20"/>
    </ExecutionResult>
