  • ​DD-WRT Linux firmware comes to Linksys routers

    Long time networking device leader Linksys has finally made good on its promise to bring the open-source DD-WRT to its Wi-Fi router family. At CES, Linksays announced you'll be able to use the Linux-based, alternative open-source firmware with the company's WRT1900AC, WRT1200AC, and recently released WRT1900ACS dual-band Gigabit Wi-Fi routers.

  • Some Linksys 802.11ac WiFi routers now officially support DD-WRT open source firmware

    DD-WRT is an open source, Linux-based replacement for the firmware that comes with many WiFi routers. It has a reputation for giving users more control over their router’s performance and security. But historically the companies that produce networking hardware haven’t really encouraged you to replace their firmware.

  • DD-WRT Software Heading to Linksys Routers

    The Linksys WRT1900AC, WRT1200AC, and recently released WRT1900ACS Dual-band Gigabit Wi-Fi routers will all have access to DD-WRT as an alternative to Linksys’ own management software and the OpenWrt’s “Chaos Calmer” release.

Distributing encryption software may break the law

Developers, distributors, and users of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) often face a host of legal issues which they need to keep in mind. Although areas of law such as copyright, trademark, and patents are frequently discussed, these are not the only legal concerns for FOSS. One area that often escapes notice is export controls. It may come as a surprise that sharing software that performs or uses cryptographic functions on a public website could be a violation of U.S. export control law. Export controls is a term for the various legal rules which together have the effect of placing restrictions, conditions, or even wholesale prohibitions on certain types of export as a means to promote national security interests and foreign policy objectives. Export control has a long history in the United States that goes back to the Revolutionary War with an embargo of trade with Great Britain by the First Continental Congress. The modern United States export control regime includes the Department of State's regulations covering export of munitions, the Treasury Department's enforcement of United States' foreign embargoes and sanctions regimes, and the Department of Commerce's regulations applying to exports of "dual-use" items, i.e. items which have civil applications as well as terrorism, military, or weapons of mass destruction-related applications.
