ACS 5.3 Default Backup Password

When doing a backup on any of the ACS 5.x appliances by default the backup is encrypted with PGP. What password is used for that? Is it configurable?

It is not configurable and that information wasnt made public. However, when you restore it should be able to decrypt it just fine.

You can try opening a TAC case but when I was in TAC wasnt able to find that key either.

Re: ACS 5.3 Default Backup Password

Thanks for the information. Then my issue is can I restore the backup to any ACS appliance? If so then the encryption is worthless because anybody with an ACS 5.x appliance can just restore my backup to their devices to see my configuration.

Yes you can restore you backup on any acs appliance. The mindset behind this was to make it a little trivial in order to view the data, but your point is valid.
