    HINT: There is no .COM Registry.

    Is Verisign out of business ?

    Or, is Verisign selling the new .COM boxes ?

    LEGAL WARNING: Use of PuTTY, PSCP, PSFTP and Plink is illegal in countries where encryption is outlawed. I believe it is legal to use PuTTY, PSCP, PSFTP and Plink in England and many other countries, but I am not a lawyer and so if in doubt you should seek legal advice before downloading it. You may find this site useful (it's a survey of cryptography laws in many countries) but I can't vouch for its correctness.

    Terrorist countries
    The "terrorist countries" are: Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.

    See BIS' Wassenaar and BIS' encryption page. See also the encryption excerpts of BXA's 1997 Annual Report.

    Personal-use exemption
    In February 1996, the ITAR rules were amended as regards personal use of cryptography. Temporary export of products for personal use was exempted from the need of a license, provided the exporter take normal precautions to ensure the security of the product, including locking the product in a hotel room or safe. The product must not be intended for copying, demonstration, marketing, sale, re-export, or transfer of ownership or control. In transit, the product must remain with the exporter's accompanying baggage. The exporter must keep records of each export for five years. Export to embargoed countries (e.g., Cuba, Libya, Syria) is prohibited. Under the new EAR, the ITAR personal use exemption is replaced by license exception TMP and BAG (see the EAR at 15 CFR 740.4 and at 740.14 and the original ITAR version). The Department of Commerce announced in February 1997 it would revise the new regulations to, among others, clarify the personal use exemption for laptop computers.
