Quick Reference

Until the end of the 1990s the US government imposed tight restrictions on cryptographic technology and specified what could or could not be exported to other countries. The US government partitioned security products into two categories: export grade security and domestic grade security. Domestic grade security technology could not be exported and is characterized by software which can resist the most powerful attacks by intruders. At the beginning of the twenty-first century the restrictions were relaxed and only a small number of countries were prevented from accessing export grade security.
