Encrypted backup sets are identified in the restore selection list by an icon with a lock on it. When you select encrypted data to restore, Backup Exec automatically validates the encryption key for the data. If the encryption key that was used to back up the data is still in the Backup Exec database, then Backup Exec selects that encryption key automatically. However, if the encryption key cannot be located, Backup Exec prompts you to provide the pass phrase for the encryption key that was used to back up the data. If you enter the correct pass phrase, Backup Exec recreates the key.
