This one actually has a lot more to do with history than with computing.
With the importance of cyrptography to any number of potential threats
to the US, a law was made that it was illegal to export computer
programs or equipment that used a level of encryption that could not

Beureau of Export Administration amended this restriction to allow
export to the 15 members of the EU and a few other specified countries.

want to just send an e-mail to the webmaster on this and have him update
