I'll need to check with LEGAL - I hope we don't need to list all the transitive dependencies.

> I come to think about our Credential Manager:
> https://github.com/apache/incubator-taverna-engine/tree/master/taverna-credential-manager
> https://github.com/apache/incubator-taverna-engine/tree/master/taverna-credential-manager-impl
> and the WSDL SSL support in

> While we don't have our own encryption code (puh!) we certainly have a fair share of
plumbing that uses it. 
> Credential Manager uses BouncyCastle to keep an encrypted user/password and certificate
store in the Taverna user home directory - based on a password the user provides.
> Obviously we also generally support https:// through Java's normal SSL support - the
Credential Manager has UI support for managing additional client and server certificates and
for asking for username/password on connections.
> The WSDL activity has support for using WS Security authentication and also works with
https.
> Looking over the policy at http://www.apache.org/dev/crypto.html I realize now that when
 we distribute the Taverna Command Line (and Workbench) binary distribution it would be bundling
and using the Bouncy Castle library - which would be covered by US Export restrictions.
> Thus this task to review what of our code and distributions would be covered by US Export
restrictions - if any - and perform the required reporting if needed.
