Encryption

Configure Encryption

Encryption can only be enabled / disabled during the creation of backup set.

1. In the Encryption window, the default Encrypt Backup Data option is enabled with an encryption key preset by the system which provides the most secure protection.

You can choose from one of the following three Encryption Type options:

  • Default – an encryption key with 44 alpha numeric characters will be randomly generated by the system
  • User password – the encryption key will be the same as the login password of your CloudBacko Go at the time when this backup set is created. Please be reminded that if you change the CloudBacko Go login password later, the encryption keys of the backup sets previously created with this encryption type will remain unchanged.
  • Custom – you can customize your encryption key, where you can set your own algorithm, encryption key, method and key length.

Click Next when you are done setting.

2. If you have enabled the Encryption Key feature in the previous step, the following pop-up window shows, no matter which encryption type you have selected.

The pop-up window has the following three options to choose from:

  • Unmask encryption key – The encryption key is masked by default. Click this option to show the encryption key.
  • Copy to clipboard – Click to copy the encryption key, then you can paste it in another location of your choice.
  • Confirm – Click to exit this pop-up window and proceed to the next step.

View Encryption Key

After a backup set is created, if encryption is enabled, the encryption key will be encrypted and stored on your CloudBacko Go machine, and can be viewed in your CloudBacko Go > Backup Sets > Select a backup set > Show advanced option > Others > Encryption > Unmask.
