Understanding Password Encryption

To protect sensitive data of your Online and on-premises Microsoft organizations, Veeam encrypts the password of every organization added to the scope according to the following:

  • Encryption is based upon using the machine key generated under the Local System account under which the Veeam.Archiver.Service (display name — Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 Service) is running.
  • An encrypted key is stored in the configuration database on the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 management server and replicated to backup proxy servers responsible for processing associated organizations.
  • An encrypted password can only be decrypted by the Local System account.
