The CISCO ASA masks certain passwords in the configuration when using the ‘show configuration’ or ‘show run’ command. Please note that this is different than encrypted passwords.
 
Example (show run):
snmp-server host inside {internal IP} community ***** version 2c
snmp-server host inside {internal IP} community ***** version 2c
 
By issuing the command ‘more system:running-config’ instead the masked passwords will now be visible in the output.
 
Example (more system:running-config):
snmp-server host inside {internal IP} community 'password' version 2c
snmp-server host inside {internal IP} community 'password' version 2c
