SynData Technologies Inc has released the first version of its strong encryption software, SynCrypt, which employs keys of 1,024-bits in length. The software encrypts any messages on documents running in Windows 3.1, 95 or NT applications, with a Java version due in about three months. Users need a copy of SynCrypt at each end to encrypt and decrypt the message. SynData has signed one bundling deal so far, with DTS Wireless Inc, but claims to have several others in the pipeline, though none is bigger than the one with DTS. SynData’s advantage, it claims, is its ease of use. The 1,024-bit key length means that the product can only be used within the US at the moment, and that’s the market SynData will be concentrating on for now. But president and chief executive David Romanoff said the company was monitoring the situation regarding possible deals outside the US, but the company will not compromise our security. At present companies need a special export license to export any software including using keys above 56 bits long.
