The US and other countries have restrictions on export of SSL technology. Because we cannot assure where people would download our stuff from, we cannot distribute the SSL code itself. But there are no restrictions on import. Because of this, the SSL DLLs are available for download from another country.
Legal Mumbo Jumbo
There may be legal issues with your use of SSL. RSA’s main patent has now expired and this certainly improves the situation.
No Inherent License
Indy allows you to do SSL by providing the code, but we do not provide a license to use SSL. If you use SSL, it is up to you to make sure that you are legally permitted to use it in the country you are in and for your application.
SSL Buddy will walk you, step by step, through the process of securing your web sites and applications. Whether your server is Indy/IntraWeb based or if it is IIS or Apache, SSL Buddy’s wizard interface will help you with the most common SSL tasks. SSL Buddy is a free utility from Arcana Technologies.
SSL DLL Download
Because of export restrictions we do not provide the DLLs directly.
