Subject Is a TSU notice needed for software using javax.crypto?
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2012 15:25:32 GMT
Hi All

One of the podlings I mentor, ODF Toolkit, is looking to implement the ODF 
encryption and signing support. As part of this, they'd be using 
javax.crytpo and java.security classes, but they wouldn't be implementing 
their own encryption algorithms

I've read through http://www.apache.org/dev/crypto.html a few times, and 
some of the linked documents, and I'm not completely sure if a TSU is 
needed or not

Java itself is controlled by ECCN 5D992.c [1], rather than 5D002 which our 
page talks about. Additionally, I'm not sure if importing and calling 
standard Java encryption functions counts as "software specially designed 
.. for the ... use of any other software on this list", either on the 
encryption side, or on Java not being another 5D002 library

So, does anyone know what the rules are for this sort of Java project?
