How do I enable 3DES option on Pix515e

Hi,

Looks like my Pix515e doesn'y have the option for DES or 3DES, do I have to buy a key or something from Cisco?

You do not need to purchase a license from Cisco. 3DES is now free and you can go to the software download on Cisco's website and register for the 3DES license. Once you fill out the form they will send you a license via Email. You then need to enter a few commands into the PIX along with the license and 3DES enables itself.

Query...

Isn't 3DES part of the K9 license on Cisco equipment which has US Export restrictions.

Re: How do I enable 3DES option on Pix515e

It's part of the router & switch IOS, which you have to have a valid CCO loging with the support option to d/l IOS.

It's already bundeld into the IOS on a PIX/ASA - you just need to enable it, just a general cco login will do.

Download Internetwork Operating System Software - the code that runs the device.
