Unformatted text preview: at tension between the First Amendment and the export control laws has not gone away should be evident from statements at a conference held by RSA Data Security. NSA’s representative from the export control office expressed the opinion that people who published cryptographic programs were “in a grey area” with respect to the law. If that is so, it is a grey area on which the first edition of this book has shed some light. Export applications for the book itself have been granted, with acknowledgement that published material lay beyond the authority of the Munitions Control Board. Applications to export the enclosed programs on disk, however, have been denied. The shift in the NSA’s strategy, from attempting to control cryptographic research to tightening its grip on the development and deployment of cryptographic products, is presumably due to its realization that all the great cryptographic papers in the world do not protect a single bit of traffic. Sitting on the shelf, this volume may be able to do no better than the books and papers that preceded it, but sitting next to a workstation, where a programmer is writing cryptographic code, it just may.
