I have an auditor asking for my firewall rules and would like them sent by email. How safe is this?- Is this the same as a configuration file?

Is there a way to export firewall rules on a Cisco ASA 5506?

You could run the show access-list command and copy it to a text file. Then sanitize the output and send it.

To get rules, follow lruiz comment.

Most of the emails today are transmitted with TLS encryption. To verify if your emails are being sent encrypted, ask auditor to check header on any of the emails from you. Alternatively, you can download any freely available PGP encryption software and send already encrypted file. You will have to share the password over the phone.
