Subject Australian SSL (was Re: New Member - David Hughes)
Date Fri, 09 Jun 1995 14:43:11 GMT
We were planning on using the Australian implementation of
SSL in NCSA httpd 1.5.  Unfortunately, we found that even
thought it is a completely independant implementation, it
can not be used in the USA without violating an RSA patent.
I believe the group is working on a version which uses rsaref,
which is in the public domain.  We're hoping to use that when
it is released.
