This Comment discusses the need for privacy over the Internet and looks at the constitutional validity of previous and current regulations governing the export of privacy-enabling technologies, such as PGP and other powerful ciphers that allow users to protect the privacy of data transmitted over the Internet. In particular, the article seeks to analyze the constitutionality of the current regulatory scheme in light of the competing interests of privacy and freedom of expression on the one hand, and the need to protect national security on the other.
