Tape encryption algorithm RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the algorithm that DPM uses when encrypting data written to tape?

    We know about the requirements of the Certificate used by DPM but what encryption actually runs - and can the encryption be modified?

  • Hi,

    DPM uses the following:

    Algorithm: AES
    Mode: CBC
    KeyLength: 256

    This is not configurable.
