ukcrypto -- UK Cryptography Policy Discussion Group


About ukcrypto
English (USA)

This group is comprised of people with a professional interest in the formulation and content of UK government policy on the
provision, use and control of encryption products and services in the UK. It was formed in response to the 1996 announcement of UK policy on the provision of encryption services on telecommunications networks.

The mailing list is unmoderated, but only subscribed members can post. Please try and restrict postings to UK Encryption law and try not to stray onto general cryptology topics. The language of the list is English, though American and other variants of English are acceptable.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the ukcrypto Archives.
