ASA 5505 "K9" software updates

I'm awaiting for my 5505 3DES device to arrive and trying to get the software current on it. However the downloads section only lists ASA 8.0(x) for the K8 edition. Am I missing somethere here? I want to update to ASA 8.0 and ASDM 6.x. But that does not seem like a possibility with the software provided on the site?

Re: ASA 5505 "K9" software updates

in traditional IOS (not pix/asa), k9 is the encryption (3des/aes) image, while k8 doesn't support anything beyond des due to export controls.

In pix/asa for whatever reason, the image is the same no matter what, you just need the activation key to turn on those features - which doesn't change the image name. hence, the k8 image is just fine, as long as the 3des/aes license has been applied once.
