30 The purpose of this memo is to clarify the status of intellectual
31 property rights asserted by RSA Security Inc. ("RSA") in the MD2, MD4 and
32 MD5 message-digest algorithms, which are documented in RFC-1319, RFC-1320,
33 and RFC-1321 respectively.
34
35 Implementations of these message-digest algorithms, including
36 implementations derived from the reference C code in RFC-1319, RFC-1320, and
37 RFC-1321, may be made, used, and sold without license from RSA for any
38 purpose.
39
40 No rights other than the ones explicitly set forth above are
41 granted. Further, although RSA grants rights to implement certain
42 algorithms as defined by identified RFCs, including implementations derived
43 from the reference C code in those RFCs, no right to use, copy, sell, or
44 distribute any other implementations of the MD2, MD4, or MD5 message-digest
45 algorithms created, implemented, or distributed by RSA is hereby granted by
46 implication, estoppel, or otherwise. Parties interested in licensing
47 security components and toolkits written by RSA should contact the company
48 to discuss receiving a license. All other questions should be directed to
49 Margaret K. Seif, General Counsel, RSA Security Inc., 36 Crosby Drive,
50 Bedford, Massachusetts 01730.
51
52 Implementations of the MD2, MD4, or MD5 algorithms may be subject to
53 United States laws and regulations controlling the export of technical data,
54 computer software, laboratory prototypes and other commodities (including
55 the Arms Export Control Act, as amended, and the Export Administration Act
56 of 1970). The transfer of certain technical data and commodities may
57 require a license from the cognizant agency of the United States Government.
58 RSA neither represents that a license shall not be required for a particular
59 implementation nor that, if required, one shall be issued.

62 DISCLAIMER: RSA MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS AND EXTENDS NO WARRANTIES
63 OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO
64 WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, VALIDITY OF
65 INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, ISSUED OR PENDING, OR THE ABSENCE OF LATENT OR
66 OTHER DEFECTS, WHETHER OR NOT DISCOVERABLE, IN CONNECTION WITH THE MD2, MD4,
67 OR MD5 ALGORITHMS. NOTHING IN THIS GRANT OF RIGHTS SHALL BE CONSTRUED AS A
68 REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY GIVEN BY RSA THAT THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE
69 ALGORITHM WILL NOT INFRINGE THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD
70 PARTY. IN NO EVENT SHALL RSA, ITS TRUSTEES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES,
71 PARENTS AND AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF
72 ANY KIND RESULTING FROM IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS ALGORITHM, INCLUDING ECONOMIC
73 DAMAGE OR INJURY TO PROPERTY AND LOST PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER RSA
74 SHALL BE ADVISED, SHALL HAVE OTHER REASON TO KNOW, OR IN FACT SHALL KNOW OF
75 THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH INJURY OR DAMAGE.
