About encrypting SAP data

The SAP Agent lets you encrypt data with encryption keys. This feature is available for backup jobs done using either RMAN or BACKINT.

Create the encryption key through the DBA-initiated Job Settings when you create or edit a job template. You must specify the job template name in the biparam.ini file.

If you run jobs with a particular encryption key and the key is deleted, the data that is backed up using the encryption key cannot be restored.
