Are you sure this is correct? I thought that Canada got access to
US encryption technology by agreeing to abide by the US export
restrictions - but maybe that only applies to technology imported
from the states. However, I was told that Nortel Entrust is only
allowed to do international encryption *if* the key server is kept
in North America. Can anyone confirm/refute this?
