Today's Federal Register contains a notice from the Department of
State, Bureau of Political Military Affairs, announcing final rule of
an amendment to the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR)
allowing U.S. persons to temporarily export cryptographic products for
personal use without the need for an export license.  The product must
not be intended for copying, demonstration, marketing, sale,
re-export, or transfer of ownership or control.  It must remain in the
possession of the exporting person, which includes being locked in a
hotel room or safe.  While in transit, it must be with the person's
accompanying baggage.  Exports to certain countries are prohibited --
currently Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.  The
exporter must maintain records of each temporary export for five
years.  See Federal Register, Vol. 61, No. 33, Friday, February 16,
1996, Public Notice 2294, pp. 6111-6113.
