securely backing up config for ASA

Unanswered Question

How do you usually store the backup config for your ASA/PIX config so that it's easily accessible, and yet it's secure enough? Do you simply save it to a network drive? Is there a better way to do it? I just like to know the best practice out there. It's because if I save the backup config in a network drive, people may be able to get to it and look at the config file since it's not encrypted. Any recommendation is welcome. Thanks.

We have our configs backed up automatically and they are stored in a database (with security). Why can't you save it to a network drive that has the appropriate permissions? You could also store them in an encrypted virtual drive using something like TrueCrypt.

Hope that helps.
