The activation key will be automatically generated and sent to the email address that you provide.

To enter the activation key, enter the following command:

This example shows how to change the activation key on the security appliance:

Re: How to enable SSL VPN License

I don't known your purchasing license which has included 3DES/AES or NOT.

However cisco is "*FREE* Register for ASA 3DES/AES IPSec software feature keys"

You can upgraded you purchasing license first and "show version" check it

If 3DES/AES feature set do not support, You can go to following web site to "Product License Registration". or

step 1: click the "here for available licenses" to select the product

step 2: click the "Cisco ASA 3DES/AES License" under the Security Products to fill the infomation such as ASA5500 serial number

The other new activation key will send to you via email.
