Use Caution When Traveling With Encryption Software

July 12, 2013

"If you bring a laptop or smartphone outside of the United States, you need a basic understanding of how international export control laws may apply to your device’s encryption software.

"Encryption software that is resident on a laptop or a smartphone is subject to export control regulations by the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security, which enforces the export administration regulations. This is a separate issue from any technical data that may be resident on a device, which is governed by International Traffic in Arms Regulations."
