We have ASA configured as SSL VPN. I am trying to find out what key we use for encryption.

I went to certificate management\identity certificates, and there is one record show VeriSign and a public with it. My understand this public key is used to authentication and generated by the ASA itself and sent to VeriSign to store and it is not the key used to encrypt the data to user. right?

If my understanding is right, where to find the key(s)?

It seems you want to use ssl with certificate authentication. You can use self signed one and a third party like Verisign etc.

You want to test with the self signed one first to make sure sslvpn  is working fine.

You can use the process shown in the following link to get a certificate from Verisign etc to install a valid certificate to be used with sslvpn.
