Description

Document URL:

https://theforeman.org/plugins/katello/3.5/user_guide/backup/index.html

Section Number and Name:

Final check-up

Describe the issue:

Currently, if the backup was compromised it could cause issues since there are hosts names in the dbs and ssh keys for foreman-proxy

Suggestions for improvement:

Add a section about moving it to a secure place or encrypting it with a password.
