Companies that manufacture software used for
secure transactions over the public Internet and
corporate intranets can now receive a license after a
single review of their products, the Commerce
Department announced today.

The department also announced that all U.S.
exporters of financial transaction software will be
able to use the strongest-available encryption in
their products. The actions were taken to promote
global electronic commerce, according to William
Reinsch, commerce undersecretary for export
administration.
