Backup Software / Backup Terms Glossary / General IT / RC4, RC5, RC6
RC4, RC5 and RC6 are the algorithms of a symmetric encryption. These solutions are different from each other in terms of methods and approaches used for data encryption. Handy Backup can provide all necessary functions to back up your RSA software data when you need it.

These encrypting solutions are widely implemented in some areas, including websites based on Joomla CMS and some other solutions.
Users can transfer the information secured by RC4/RC5/RC6 without a need for extra security measures, as these algorithms are very effective for data protection. This can be useful for secure backup, as it allows saving backup time from additional encryption measures.
Sometimes, a user can also want to back up the database controlling RC4, RC5 or RC6 data. To do it with Handy Backup, please find the database created by RSA Authentication Manager (the one of the three key components of RSA encryption software) and back it up using the “Computer” option.
The answer is simple. When you are planning to renew or to upgrade your RSA control software, please make a backup of all RSA data firstly. This can save all RC4/RC5/RC6 keys and encryption features intact, regardless of any events that can occur during replacing your RSA package.
