Governments planning to control security tech exports

An international arms control regime is planning to create export controls for some software security tools on the grounds that they might be used for nefarious purposes.

An international arms control regime is planning to classify software and hardware products for hacking and network surveillance and intelligence as “dual use” products which “…may be detrimental to international and regional security and stability.” The process will likely lead to export controls on such products.
