    Hi

    How do you understand it (certificate operation - "backing up and restoring certificates" slide)?

    "When you back up the FortiGate configuration, the keys and certificates are backed up as well."


    https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/6.2.0/cookbook/702257/configuration-backups

    "Enable Encryption. Encryption must be enabled on the backup file to back up VPN certificates."

    By the cookbook "encryption" is required to backup VPN certificates. Does it mean the clear text backup doesn't contain VPN certificates?
    I can see them in the section: "config vpn certificate local"?

    Regards
