They adopted it from the start, they are also distributing DES from
Canada to avoid legal problems.
Distributing DES from Canada doesn't solve anything as they have the same
restrictions as the US.
Not _quite_ so. It is legal to export crypto from USA to Canada, but this
code is then ITAR "tainted" and cannot be re-exported. If the code is
"untainted", (IE does not come from USA,) it is freely exportable.
in the document referred from www.openbsd.org, someone actually could
export U.S. DES (11% US), and reported he could get a permit for
distributing Kerberos V, based on the Public Domain license. It seems
like US laws are a mess and don't apply completely to Canada.
In any case bones (Kerberos without encription) can be exported freely
US restrictions are ridiculous and will fall some day (even pornography
restrictions falled), but meanwhile Canada may be a twilight zone.
