Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This could be considered a hacking question and that may be why it has not been answered before. We try not to promote hacking techniques on this forum as there are many other places on the web for those activities. With that being said, a tool many auditors I have seen use is the dumpsec tool. It also might be useful for you to share with us exactly what information the auditor is looking for as there might be better tools for this purpose.
