It will work, as with PGP it just won't be legal. Basically the only
encryption you can use widely (excl France and a few others) is the
stuff that's so weak as to be useless anyway.
Although this doesn't help the commercial aspect of encryption much,
Apparently you can get permission to export encryption technology
to other branches of ones company that are outside of the US. This
does require working with the Govt. and it requires their approval.
I have not done this yet so I can't tell you how hard it is to go
through the process (or how you go through it). If anyone can't
find the info how to go about this and needs to go through this go ahead
and mail me and I'll let you have what info I can get you.
I still agree that the Govt's really have to get their stuff together
on this "munitions" stuff. But...that's a debate for another forum.
