Many governments have been strongly opposed to the use of strong encryption techniques because of the implications in the fight against terrorism, organized crime, fraud and drug trafficking. Because of the widespread development of electronic commerce, these governments have had to rethink their views and have enacted legislation to regulate the use of encryption and digital signatures. In addition to this the continuing growth of the use of the Internet for electronic commerce, electronic mail and online banking have made encryption and digital signatures a necessity for security.
