encryption of tape encryption key

I found that the tape encryption key seems to be stored in /etc/proxmox-backup/tape-encrytion-key*.json. Is it possible to put this in an encrypted volume? The customer requires every sensitive material to be encrypted in storage. Tape encryption key would very probably need to be encrypted in disk too.
mhmm never tried it, but if either the root filesystem or /etc/proxmox-backup is an encrypted volume this should work, but as i said, we didn't test this so your mileage may vary
