Does Cisco have any password decryptor tools? I have an ASA and I am not sure if this can be decrypted (see below)

username myname password JFscEFSDfsdffsfss encrypted

Thanks

Cain & Abel may be able to do it.  I've used it on the VPN group passwords but I can't say for sure that it can crack the username password.

You can decrypt "password 7", other maybe with special tools.

C&A cannot do it. I do not like the online password decrypt tool. Is there any software?
Also, with username myname password JFscEFSDfsdffsfss encrypted, doesn't it mean that the password is encrypted and it is not level 7?

Yes, you can decrypt only passwords with level 7. All other (encrypted) is no go...

You can of course try to do password recovery - reboot ASA, break boot sequence...

Correct. The username password does not use weak encryption.

And if C&A cant's crack the password, you'll be forced to perform a password recovery.
