ASA5540 - 3DES license

Hi,

 

I got 2x  ASA5540-k8, I just checked that 3DES is "disabled" on the firewalls.

 

I've seen lots of material online, 3DES is free and all I have to do is enter the serial number of my device below, to obtain my license key:

Question:

1. Do I need to upgrade/ change the image of my ASA5540-k8 to a "k9" version? Or can I use the original IOS software that came with my ASA5540-k8?

2. Is this is as simple as encoding entering the license key on the ASA5540 to enable 3 DES ?

3. Is these truly free?

 

Thanks,

Paul
