U.S. Customs Service agents have arrested two men for allegedly attempting to export military-grade encryption technology to China. Authorities on Tuesday arrested Eugene You Tsai Hsu, of Blue Springs, Mo., and David Tzu Wvi Yang, of Temple City, Calif., accusing the two of plotting to export an encryption technology designed for use exclusively by the U.S. government.

    A customs spokesman would not confirm whether the KIV-7HS encryption unit in question has ever been used outside of the U.S. government or exported to any other nations, saying only that the communications encryption device cannot be legally exported from the United States without permission from the State Department.
