Using the recovery key in SafeGuard LAN Crypt Administration 3.61

  • Article ID: 111532
  • Updated: 08 Sep 2010

The database recovery has been redesigned in SafeGuard LAN Crypt Administration 3.61.

  • It is now possible to split up the recovery key cryptographically into eight parts.
  • The database recovery key can no longer be entered manually during creation as it is determined automatically by SafeGuard LAN Crypt.

Please check that you have a working Master Security Officer (MSO) before updating the database. During the database migration the existing recovery key will be deleted because of a change in the recovery mechanism. You will need an MSO to recreate the recovery key after database migration.
