Patent Issues

On this page, I try to collect some information about patents and especially expired patents, mostly regarding TLS. This information might be wrong; any corrections and additions are highly appreciated!

The Diffie-Hellman (DH) patent expired in 1997.

The RSA patent expired in 2000.
