Step 5. Configure Encryption
At the Encryption step of the wizard, provide a key for decryption:
- If data in the external repository is encrypted with a key management service (KMS) customer master key (CMK), Veeam Backup & Replication shows the used key. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically decrypt the backups.
- If data in the external repository is encrypted with a password, select Enable backup file encryption and then click Perform Veeam encryption with the following password. From the drop-down list, select the password that must be used to decrypt the data. If the password is correct, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically decrypt the backups.
If you have not added the password beforehand, click the Manage passwords link or the Add button to add the necessary password. For more information on adding passwords, see Creating Passwords.
If you do not specify the decryption password, you can do it later. For more information, see Viewing External Repository Data.
For more information on how backups are encrypted, see the S3 Repository Encryption section in the Veeam Backup for AWS User Guide.
