Re: IBM's patented algorithm


  There is community consensus behind DES CBC, which has been long
analysed in the public and has no patent issues.  I don't believe
that any proprietary algorithm would be a good choice as a mandatory
to implement algorithm.  I personally find the IBM license terms that
you describe to be onerous.
