NAME amaespipe - wrapper program for aespipe
DESCRIPTION amaespipe requires aespipe, uuencode and gpg to work. Aespipe is available from : http://loop-aes.sourceforge.net
amaespipe will search for the aespipe program in the following directories: /usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin.
amaespipe is called by amcrypt for Amanda data encryption.
amaespipe is based on aespipe´s bzaespipe program. It calls aespipe to encrypt data using AES256 as the encryption and SHA256 as the hash function. GPG key should be stored in $AMANDA_HOME/.gnupg/am_key.gpg. amaespipe reads passphrase from file descriptor 3. During decryption, amaespipe autodects encryption type and hash function from the encrypted image.
