Question:

Can IKJEFT01 be run against the backup file?

Running commands against the backup file seems like a good idea especially when the commands are I/O intensive.

Answer:

You can not run IKJEFT01 against a security file other than the active security file. You will have to do a temporary shutdown of TSS and then restart it pointing to the backup secfile and then run the job.
