Step 1: Registration

Go to http://www.cisco.com/go/license, you need a CCO account to login, after login you will have to enter the product authorization key which comes with your license you have purchased.

You will need to enter your ASA5505 serial number as well:

Use show version or show activation-key command to check your serial number.

Within an hour Cisco will send you a mail with the activation key.

Step 2: Install the license

conf t

activation-key <the key you received from cisco>

After you have entered the activation key you must reload your ASA5505 to take effect.
