Viewing pre-shared keys in Cisco ASA configuration

Most of the configuration on an ASA can be viewed in plain text just by using the “show run” command. One of the exceptions to this is viewing pre-shared keys for VPN’s (the keys appear as asterisks ‘*’). These keys can however be viewed using the command “more system:running-config” which displays the running configuration including the pre-shared keys in plain text. If you want to filter the output to just the lines containing the keys useĀ “more system:running-config | include keys”.
