IBM Boosts Encryption Initiative
IBM will roll out several security initiatives next month
that include a new way to build encryption into software
and technology that could enable U.S. companies to
export products with strong encryption algorithms.
IBM also will introduce several "key-recovery"
technologies that could enable businesses to export
encrypted data or software beyond the current 40-bit
limit--without breaking U.S. government restrictions
The sources also added that the technology may satisfy
the requirement imposed by the U.S. government that it
be able to access encrypted data on demand.
