In the configuration file of a firewall ASA5510, the password are encrypted.
Do you know the kind of encryption used?
Thanks for your help.
The configured passwords that correspond to locally configured user accounts are hashed using a proprietary hashing algorithm. The ASA then stores these hash values in the configuration file instead of the clear text values. When you put in your password the hash is calculated again and verified againsta the stored one.
I hope it helps.
