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.
