[Regs] U.S. Will Renegotiate Wassenaar Arrangement
by Decius at 11:27 pm EST, Feb 29, 2016

Agencies including State and the departments of Commerce, Defense, Homeland Security and the National Security Council agreed to seek removal of limits on sales of "technology" needed to create "intrusion software," the official said.

That deletion would address the industry's chief Wassenaar concern: that an overly broad definition of "technology" would disrupt routine cross-border data flows about cybersecurity threats.

I think that I may have been the first person to raise the issue of the "technology" controls publicly, in an open letter to BIS dated March 12, 2015 and posted here on MemeStreams.
