Network Associates Withdraws from Key Recovery Alliance

Network Associates made the decision today to withdraw from the Key
Recovery Alliance. The decision to withdraw has been made based on the
acquisition of Pretty Good Privacy, Inc. (PGP), announced on December

Network Associates' decision to buy PGP was based on a commitment to
PGP's product line and the deployment of strong cryptography.

NAI believes that although the Key Recovery Alliance is not in itself
a political organization, membership in it has unintended political
consequences that outweigh any technical benefits we may receive.
