Perhaps I've missed it, but I'm finding scant documentation on backup encryption. Questions:

1. I'm presuming this encryption is outside the encryption mechanism used by SQL Server. True?
2. What are the requirements and restrictions for the password used to encrypt backups? Is there a maximum password length? Are there restrictions on characters that can be used?
3. When I create a job to restore an encrypted backup, is the password visible in the job step?
