How works cypher in america? I know that strong cypher is forbidden in America, AES256

Hi,

I'm using some well known cypher algorithm to encrypt my password,

sent from the phone to servlet.

 

The AES cipher uses a 256bit shared key, is it illegal in america?
How this restrictions works?

Am I allowed to cypher my password using AES256 in america?

Will I have problem if I will use it on the App World?

 

Thanks.

Read the section under "Default", it is not illegal to use ciphers and hasn't been for years.

thanks for your reply but why App World ask us if we use cypher?

I haven't put anything up on App World so I can't anwser that. You can try asking in the App World section of these forums. It is not illegal to use strong ciphers in America but that doesn't mean it isn't illegal in other countries (unless it explicitly says it is for America in which case I don't know).
