ASA5505 license question

What determines the features available on an ASA5505? The software image?  Is the license something separate? If I installed an image we use for ipsec tunnels etc (advanced stuff), on a base license ASA5505. Would we get all of the features?

thanks

The ASA5505 is intended for small or branch office and teleworker deployments, often in conjunction with a 5510 or higher model at the head office to which it will establish a secure VPN, whilst providing full security for other Internet traffic. The device has 8 10/100Mbps Ethernet ports, including 2 with Power over Ethernet support suitable for PoE devices such as IP phones or cameras, so it can be used as single unit solution for the smaller office. Key differences compared to the 5510 are the reduced support for VPN connections (only 10 but upgradeable to 25 with license), only 3 vLANs (25 with Security Plus license)  and only a slot for the optional Security Services Card so there is no option for the advanced Content Security services.
