Subject export restrictions & mirroring Apache at NCSA
Date Thu, 18 May 1995 16:59:53 GMT
Good News: We have receive permission to mirror the Apache
release on our ftp server.  We'll probably only have the
most recent (or most recent 2) release(s) available to keep
the space used down.

Bad News: The NSA (for the state department) has declared release
1.4 and all previous releases in violation of the cryptography 
export restrictions (cryptography is covered under the arms
trafficing restrictions).  NCSA cordially requests that you
remove and copies of those releases from your ftp server unless
you restrict distribution to the USA and Canada.  Furthermore,
any code you have developed based on those releases must either
have the PGP/PEM hooks removed, be licensed through the state
department for export on a per user basis, or made available 
only in the USA and Canadian.

	Release 1.4.1 (now available on our ftp site under
has the PGP/PEM hooks removed.  We are working on setting
up a USA/Canada restricted server which will provide access
to the export restricted versions of 1.5 which will contain
the PGP/PEM hooks.  There will also be unrestricted versions
of 1.5 which will not support bulk encryption, but will support
multiple flavors of authentication.
