There are no line commands in the ASA.
To secure the console port, you need physical security, such a a locked cabinet, to protect the ASA. If anyone gains physical access to your ASA, they can console into the ASA and potentially obtain or change the config. (The intruder can also boot the ASA into ROMMON mode and reset the password unless you’ve run a no service password-recovery to disable this capability. Otherwise, it’s enabled by default.)
The console is only protected by the enable password (to gain level 15 access).

For remote (vty) access, you set a username/password and tell the ASA to use that:
username ciscouser password 3USUcOPFUiMCO4Jk encrypted
aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL


Then you define from where you can access it:
ssh 172.16.1.0 255.255.255.0 inside

And set the idle timeout (default 5 minutes):
ssh timeout 60

That should do it.
