CRYPTOGRAPHY

EXPORT CONTROL

The Software contains encryption software. Your country may have restrictions on the import, possession, and use, and/or re-export to another country, of encryption software. BEFORE using any encryption software, you are obliged to check the country's laws, regulations and policies concerning the import, possession, or use, and re-export of encryption software, to see if this is permitted.

ENCRYPTION ITEMS

Details of the encryption software in the Software are provided to assist in obtaining relevant export control classification and approval. Cryptography in the Software has been deemed eligible by the U.S. Government Department of Commerce for export under License Exception Technology Software Unrestricted (TSU) for both object code and source code.

The Software includes the implementation of AES and ARCFOUR algorithms for the purpose of encrypting PDF files. The following Java classes contain encryption items (the plug-in may contain both binary and source code):

com.itextpdf.text.pdf.crypto.AESCipher.java
com.itextpdf.text.pdf.crypto.AESCipherCBCnoPad.java
com.itextpdf.text.pdf.crypto.ARCFOUREncryption.java
com.itextpdf.text.pdf.crypto.IVGenerator.java

DEPENDENCIES

Part of the Software provided by iText Group NV needs external libraries:

If you want to compile iText or iTextSharp, you'll need three extra libraries: bcprov, bcmail and bctsp. You'll also need them at runtime if your code involves encryption or digital signing. These libraries were released by The Legion of the Bouncy Castle. Please read their license for more information about using them.

If you are using CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) font technology (fonts that aren't embedded in the PDF, but that use font packs you can install with Adobe Reader), you need an extra iTextAsian.jar. Please read the file cmap_info.txt inside this jar for more info about the copyright.

If you are using hyphenation, you need an extra itext-hyph-xml.jar. This jar contains files distributed with the Apache FOP library. Please check the copyright notices in these files before using them.

If you use the PdfCleanUp functionality (available in the xtra package), you also need two Apache Commons libraries: commons-imaging and commons-io. Please consult the POM file of the xtra package to find out which versions are used.
