REQUEST FOR COMMODITY JURISDICTION DETERMINATION FOR: "Applied Cryptography" Cryptographic Book by Bruce Schneier
Your commodity jurisdiction (CJ) request was referred to the Departments of Commerce and Defense for their review and recommendations. As a result, the Department of State has determined that the referenced commodity is not subject to the licensing jurisdiction of the Department of State since the item is in the public domain. However, this ruling covers only the subject book and not the two source code disks that the book references and that are available from the author.
Should you require further assistance on this matter, please contact Maj. Gary Oncale at (703) 875-5655.
Sincerely, [signed] William B. Robinson Director Office of Defense Trade Controls Phil Karn 7431 Teasdale Avenue San Diego, CA 92122
