The International Version of PGP is a slightly modified algorithm with
fewer bits. Currently, it is illegal under the Data Encryption and
Privacy Act (modified) of 1995 to export encryption programs which use
56+ bits outside the United States.
There is, of course, a workaround to get superior encryption with the
Internation versions (not only of pgp, but RSA and DES as well). Make
3 keys and do the following:
1) encrypt with key 1
2) decrypt with key 2
3) encrypt with key 3
Wish everyone all the luck in the world to crack that. Even a machine
capable of a billion processes per second would have to have a million
such processers in order to break even 30bit keys in less time than
the universe is old!

Hmmm, as far as I know is the Us version only for US-Citizes in the US and
the -i for all outside.
What to do for a non-US-citizen in the states like me ?
So the stupid law forbids pgp at all ??
donnow, correct me if I am wrong
