Australia is said to be at least two years behind the United States when it comes to the internet, so the two-year communication blackout between the US and Australian branches of encryption developer RSA Security seems entirely appropriate. The ban existed because of the US government rule forbidding the export of security encryption products. Now that the ban has been lifted, Mr Art Coviello, the president and chief executive of RSA Security, one of the world's largest encryption developers, took time last week to get reacquainted with his Brisbane development team.

    During the ban, RSA's export products were developed in non-US development centres, which were precluded from sharing any data with its 450-strong US development team.
