If you are running a 4510 or  4520, it's simple as long you have a contract.  Using IDM GO TO configuration, sensor management,license

And the serial number should populate the right top window and gives you a option to update from cisco.com. if you don't have a license you can login to support and get a 90 day trial while you figure it out.

Every License has expiry. There is no permanent IPS license available because there is always one service contract is associated with this.

you have to renew your license every year ---the IPS have a hardware contract and also have a software contract.

The software is a yearly license for sig updates, etc.....hardware--- hardware failure
