Title:  Encryption Method in R12

Description:

How is data encrypted when I select e ncrypt data in the job selection?

Solution

Starting with CA ARCserve Backup r12, the Windows client agents will use a 256-bit AES algorithm provided in the RSA BSAFE cryptographic library for all encryption purposes. Any data collected by earlier versions of CA ARCserve Backup agents will use either a 168-bit 3DES or a proprietary CA encryption algorithm for encryption purposes. In addition, the Windows base product also uses the same 256-bit AES algorithm to store any sensitive information on the CA ARCserve Backup server. The AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) feature has been developed to replace the DES (Data Encryption Standard) and is designed to be more secure than DES.

The AES is a FIPS-approved cryptographic algorithm that can be used to protect electronic data. The AES algorithm is a symmetric block cipher that can encrypt and decrypt information.
