Background

The #SNMP Library is open source software that contains strong encryption. Specifically, it has the ability to encrypt and decrypt SNMPv3 protocol. Its primary distribution point is in the United States, and subsequently falls under U.S. encryption export regulations.

To the best of our knowledge, #SNMP Library falls under ECCN 5D002 and qualifies for license exemption TSU under Section 734.3(b)(3) of the EAR. There are no U.S. regulations that prohibit you from downloading #SNMP Library.
