"The European Union (EU) is expected to announce plans to mirror the recent "opening up" of encryption export regulations amongst IT security companies in the US."

"One of the first firms to gain a license was eSoft, which is now busy exporting its 168-bit technology on a general basis outside North America for the first time."

"Earlier this month, eSoft announced it had started shipping 168-bit encryption versions of its Linux-based firewall and virtual private network (VPNP) systems. International customers were previously limited to encryption based on 56 bit key."
