You need to upgrade to ASA 8.0(4).

ASA 8.0(2) was released in June '07 several months before the SSM-40 was released in early '08.

ASA 8.0(3) was released in Nov '07 before the SSM-40 was released.

SSM-40 support was first added in an 8.0(3) Interim release in early '08.

The first official version to support the SSM-40 is 8.0(4).
