Encryption - Special Rules

Encryption is a complex area of control under both the Export Administration Regulations and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations. Any projects that involve strong cryptography should be reviewed in conjunction with the appropriate regulations.

The Bureau of Industry and Security, Department of Commerce, provides extensive information on encryption, including classification tools.
