Re: V11 Linux Immutability

Post by Gostev »

I suppose we could have a config file that defines the absolute minimum immutability period regardless of what is set in the user interface (right not it's hardcoded 7 days).

This idea is great!
Also, is the encryption done on the repo? If someone changes the encryption password the backups are also at risk even if immutable. Perhaps the encryption password could also be set locally..

Encryption is done on the source side (Proxy, Veeam Agent) ... ml?ver=110
Veeam Backup & Replication uses the block cypher encryption algorithm. Encryption works at the source side. Veeam Backup & Replication reads VM or file data, encodes data blocks, transfers them to the target side in the encrypted format and stores the data to a file in the backup repository or archives the data to tape. Data decryption is also performed on the source side: Veeam Backup & Replication transfers encrypted data back to the source side and decrypts it there.
