Security Device Manager Cisco Router 2811

From the website i got this info:
SDM (Security Device Manager) allows you to configure and manage your router via the use of a GUI. Please find the steps below :

1)Download the file from Cisco's website.
2)Ensure that you have the sdmconfig*.cfg file within your routers flash for your version of router. You can confirm this by using the command `show flash`.

1) I tried to find SDM from cisco website but unable to find SDM, where I can download this file?

2) from the info (website) i did not see any file that resemble  sdmconfig*.cfg see the attachment , why should I do?

If you have a Cisco login, just go to and login, download the SDM of choice.
If no account, just create one and login.

Sdmconfig*.cfg when available in flash is a config that is needed if you want to factory-default the router.
