What should be sanitized for Auditors?

    Obviously all hashed passwords should be sanitized.  What else should be?

    SNMP community strings?
    IP if policy permits?
    Anything else?

Suggestions?  Comments?

 I'd sanitize as much as possible; including the following:
SNMP community strings
All public IPs if possible (or mask them out like so: x.x.x.82); private IPs don't matter (ie: 10.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x-172.31.x.x, 192.168.x.x)
Running Activation Key
Serial Number
RADIUS/TACACS server keys
ISDN spid
All usernames and passwords
Any circuit IDs that appear in interface descriptions

Just my $0.02.
