What exactly is contained in the private-config.text file, and how does that defer from the config.text file? The little bit I could find on it is that it hold encrypted information, and that is why access is denied to viewing its contents.

Private-config file is a secure file that is part of the startup configuration. It supports encryption technologies, but it is not user accessible. Private-config is used to store SSH, IPsec, SNMPv3 related info. Its not beneficial to a user from any standpoint. Hence, a user can not read from or write to it.
