Vendors selling security software products are increasingly bypassing US encryption blockades by using European applications.
Reflex Magnetics has added some new 32-bit programs for Windows users to secure their data communications with what it describes as military levels of encryption. Multi-nationals are able to use such software within their various subsidiaries to avoid US legislation, which restricts the export of encrypted products.
Disknet Secure Communications uses technology developed in the Czech Republic and can encrypt data sent via any Email package. It can also encrypt FTP file transfers. Keys to the cryptography are held by the company.
The US currently prohibits the export of encryption technology above 40 bits without some form of key recovery system which enables government agencies to translate encoded messages.
Sun announced earlier this year that it would use technology from a Russian company in some of its encryption software.
The release of this software has been delayed indefinitely, however, and it remains unclear whether this is because of technical problems or problems with US legislation.
