ASA // trustpoint command "validation-policy"

while configuring and understanding ASAs way of handling certificates, I encountered the command "validation-policy" in the command-reference of the ASA (8.2(2)):

AFAIK, it allows you to limit the use of a certain trustpoint within the ASA to a specific usage, e.g. client authentication. I wanted to test the feature and use it for a customer-implementation, but I can't - it seems the command is simply not there?!

asa(config)# crypto ca trustpoint
asa(config-ca-trustpoint)# validation-policy
ERROR: % Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Is there any prerequisite I'm not aware of?

By the way, the documentation here on CCO is rather inconsistant. E.g., the configuration-guide tells me to use the command "support-user-cert-validation", while the command-reference for the same version (8.2) tells me the command is deprecated!

Thanks for help!
