Truly, Taewook KIM ================================================== Taewook KIM Researcher at the EU Center of Korea University Researcher at the Korea Information Security Agency Chief Director of the CYBIK (Cyberlaw Institute of Korea) http://www.cybik.com ================================================== Fra: Pedersen, Martin Dahl <MDP@FSK.dk Til: 'firstname.lastname@example.org' <email@example.com Sendt: 1998/12/3 12:31 Emne: SV: Request Dear Taewook KIM Mads Bryde Andersen has asked me to answer your request. An Expert Committee on Cryptography under the auspices of the Ministry of Research and Information Technology, including representatives from other Danish ministries, released a report in April 1997. The Committee studied the advantages and disadvantages of introducing regulations covering the use of cryptography. The Committee recommended against introducing such regulations, but suggested that Danish cryptography policy should be viewed in light of international developments. An analysis of the effects of introducing incentive schemes for the use of key recovery systems was finished in May 1998, which concluded that the introduction of such schemes could not be recommended in light of the present international situation. Against this background, the Expert Committee made its final recommendations in June 1998. The Committee concluded that neither regulation nor incentive schemes should be implemented at this time, but that international developments should be closely followed and the possibility of regulating encryption re-considered if the general international approach moves in this direction.
