OpenSSL encryption

OpenSSL encryption

Hi everyone,

I do not know if this topic falls in this forum, but i would still like to post this here in case someone has answers to my questions.

I would like to ask about the encryption technology of openssl. In the openssl website, it mentioned about strong cryptography. What does this mean? How many bits its encryption is? Is it alright to distribute/exportopenssl (certificates)? Will it not violate anylaw against strong encryption in the US or other countries? How many bits is allowed for encrytion.

I'm not really familiar withlaws against strong encryption. I have onlyread that there are restrictions with regards to the number of bits to use for encryption.
