Type 3 encrypted OSPF password

Hello

 

I would like to setup a new OSPF device on a vlan/subnet where 6 other NX-OS

devices are already operating, used as a transit segment: unfortunately all devices

run MD5 authentication on their interfaces, and the secret is type 3 encrypted (I

gues that means 3des)

 

ip ospf message-digest-key 1 md5 3 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 

I don't have the cleartext available, even if I have full privilege access on all devices:

is there a way to obtain the cleartext and decrypt the type 3 cipher?

 

Thank you
