If your ASA is running on 7.2(2) code, then its pretty simple. It can be done using a single command:

hw-module module password-reset

However, if you are on a version older than 7.2(2), then we need to reimage the SSM module to recover the password. Here is a link which explains the procedure:

Ok .. I'm assuming that you need explanation about following string:

Image URL [tftp://]

"IPS-SSM-K9-sys-1.1-a-5.0-0.15-S91-0.15.img" this is a system image file which can be downloaded from following link:

(A valid CCO ID with software level access is required)

For this procedure, you essentially need a system image file. A normal signature update file will not work.
