Kermit 95 - Export Permissions

Kermit 95 2.1 includes strong encryption capabilities as part of its security features. Export of cryptographic software is restricted by United States of America Export Administration Regulations. This is a matter of USA law, which governs the New York based Kermit Project.

The United States Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), via CCATS # G025631 dated 07/16/2002, has granted to Kermit 95:

This allows export of the cryptographic version of Kermit 95 to all countries except Cuba, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Libya, Sudan, and Syria. Of course the non-cryptographic version can be exported to any country at all but is available only for electronic purchase and delivery, not in shrinkwrapped form. (If you disagree with the composition of the list of embargoed countries or any other facet of US export law, please direct your comments to the appropriate government or international bodies.)
