Configuration back up on ASA 5520 using snmp

Is it possible to backup the configuration on the ASA 5520 using snmpcommunity string from an internal device or is this not a good practice?

The best practice is to use RANCID, ssh into

your asa device and backup the configuration

that way. That is the safest, bar none.

RANCID is the tool that provide automation

just for this kind of jobs.

The problem with tftp is that your information

is traversing the network in clear text,

not encrypted.

Anyone who work in security should know

better than sending important information

in clear text.
