: RSA Security Releases RSA Encryption Algorithm into Public Domain
Note that other information at the site says that RSAREF isn't
released into the public domain. Its use is still governed by
copyright law, so we'll have to use the international version of
RSAREF if we want to get RSA into -current.
RSAREF was only neccessary whilst the patent was
enforced. Now that RSA is released we can use
the OpenSSL RSA implementation which is better.
 The press release talk about RSADSI "waiving its
rights to enforce the RSA patent for any development
This is very cunning as the patent never actually
covered development. Instead it covers usage and
sales of products incorporating RSA, both of which
are not explicitly allowed for in the press release.
Better be careful, better get written approval!
