The top bit set  shows that the EngineID confirms that it's following SNMPv3 specifications.
The first 4 octets (less the top bit) comprise the enterprise.id which is "00000009" and correct as it matches Cisco Systems assigned enterprise.id number.
The 5th octet specifies how the remaining octets are to be interpreted.
0 - reserved, unused
1 - IPv4 Address (4 octets)
2 - IPv6 Address (16 octets)
3 - MAC Address (6 octets) <<- This is what Cisco's Engine ID specifies in the 5th Octet.
There are other types/formats, but I'll omit the rest of the list as Cisco uses 03 by default.
Notice the number of octets after the 03. There are actually 7 octest and not 6 per RFC-3411 specifications not only making this an invalid MAC address, but mistakenly identifies a Cisco product as that of several other vendor products.
6 Octet valid MAC Shifted Prefix Shifted Vendor 00 14 a8 1c c3 01 00:14:a8 Cisco Systems 00 14 a8 1c c3 40 00:14:a8 Cisco Systems 00 17 59 5c e5 41 00:17:59 Cisco Systems 00 17 e0 11 9c 81 00:17:e0 Cisco Systems 00 1c f6 5c e4 02 00:1c:f6 Cisco Systems 00 1d 45 7a 47 83 00:1d:45 Cisco Systems 00 1d 71 3a 64 01 00:1d:71 Cisco Systems 00 1d 71 3b e8 01 00:1d:71 Cisco Systems
In other words, there is one too many leading  octets which makes the Engine ID non-conformant per RFC-3411 specifications and also causes for mistaken identity of a Cisco Systems product as that of various other vendors products!
Also note that WireShark v1.2.5 displays the supposed MAC Address as <Data not conforming to RFC3411>.
This should be fixed!
P.S. If a very security strict NMS manager were to discard this packet for being non-compliant with RFC-3411, then communications would not possible. Thus far, the NMS managers I've tested don't seem to mind this little annomaly and continue business as usual, but it's still not-compliant and as such, should be fixed.
Re: Cisco IOS Non-compliant bug with SNMP v3 (RFC-3411)
No, Cisco's engineIDs are not RFC3411 compliant, but this is by design. The sixth octet indicates whether or not the engine is an agent or manager engine. A value of 0 indicates that the engine is acting as an agent where as a value of 1 indicates the engine is a manager. The remaining six octets are the MAC address of the lowest numbered interface.
I don't know of any SNMP manager which would discard a packet which contains such an engineID. As long as the engineID is unique per agent, managers should accept the value.
