Export Control


Cryptographic software is subject to the US government export control and economic sanctions laws (“US export laws”) including the US Department of Commerce Bureau of Industry and Security’s (“BIS”) Export Administration Regulations (“EAR”, 15 CFR 730 et seq., ). BIS has been notified of the release of open source software code to this website under license exception TSU in accordance with part 740.13 of the EAR. Cryptographic software not related to this project that is posted on this site may also be subject to US export laws, including the requirements of license exception TSU. It is the responsibility of the entity (including persons) to ensure compliance with US export laws when posting software and technology related to any other project.

Software and/or technical data subject to the US export laws may not be directly or indirectly exported, re- exported, transferred or released (“exported”) to US embargoed or sanctioned destinations currently including Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria, but any amendments to this list shall apply. US export laws prohibit the acceptance of contributions from nationals of embargoed and sanctioned countries.

In addition, software and/or technical data may not be exported to an entity barred by the US government from participating in export activities. Denied entities include those listed on BIS’s Denied Persons and Entities Lists, and the US Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control’s Specially Designated Nationals List.
