Thank you for downloading the Java(tm) Cryptography Extension (JCE) 1.2.

JCE 1.2 replaces JCE 1.1, which never went beyond an early-access

JCE 1.2 supplements the Java Development Kit (JDK(tm)) 1.2, and requires
that you have JDK 1.2 installed.

JCE 1.2 is written entirely in the Java(tm) programming language.

Understanding The Export Issues
JCE 1.2 is available within the U.S. and Canada only.  It may not be
exported outside the U.S. or Canada.  When you downloaded the software
and agreed to the terms of the license, you agreed to comply with all
U.S. laws and regulations concerning export of this software.  Be
aware that if you export this software outside the U.S. or Canada, you
are liable of violating U.S. laws.

JCE 1.2 must not be exported outside the U.S. or Canada.  However,
this does not automatically disqualify products that incorporate JCE 1.2
for export.

Whether a product that incorporates JCE 1.2 is exportable or not is a
case-by-case decision by the U.S. Commerce Department, and will depend
on how tightly JCE is bundled with that product, and how easy it is
for users to access the cryptographic functionality directly and use
it for other than the product's purposes or replace it with stronger
cryptographic algorithms or keys.

	Export Policy Resource Page
	Computer Systems Public Policy

Where To Find Documentation
Once you have installed JCE 1.2, you will be able to read more detailed
information about the software and how to use it.

The following documents will be of interest to you:

+ An "API Specification & Reference" document:


+ A guide that explains how to write a Cryptographic Service Provider
  for JCE 1.2:


+ JCE 1.2 javadocs:


("jce1.2" is the name of the directory that is automatically
created when you extract JCE 1.2.)
