MEMORANDUM FOR: Richard C. Barth (BARTH)

FROM: George J. Tenet (TENET)

SUBJECT: PAPERS FOR PRINCIPALS

CC: Records (RECORDS)

BARTHMAN:

Can you shoot me a copy of the paper going to principals
regarding telecommunications sales and the Russkies.  I have
some equities in this fight and should be up to speed,
particularly with your departure being as imminent as it is.
When can I take you to lunch by the way?  When can you spare an
hour to debrief me on exports/encryption?  Why are you leaving
me?  Do you want my job? my wife? My 1974 Camaro?  This place
will suck eggs without you to keep me sane.

MEMORANDUM FOR:
          William L. Clements
( CLEMENTS )

FROM:          George J. Tenet
           (TENET)

SUBJECT:    export issues and encryption

bill:

the computer security advisory group is having another
meeting on September 1 and 2.

John Podesta, would like us to get a paper prepared on export
controls. From John's perspective, the paper should include
our assessment of what is really going on in the wodd. What
kind of products are out there, what are the attitudes of
foreign govemments to the use of encryption - what can you
buy?

i had previously asked Barth to get Commerce to provide us
with a dispassionate assessment of the wodd's encryption
market place. I called him. He says he is seeing a woman
tonight who should know where this study is. In addition, we
had tasked CIA to study the issue as well. they have a paper
in draft which will be coming along shortly- perhaps in the
next day or two..

Then John would like a dispassionate assessment of the issues
we face as we seek to make a decision on expod policy in
the context of encryption.

I am trying to set up a meeting with you, barth and myself in
the next day or two.

Can you give me a buzz before you go home tonight.

MEMORANDUM FOR:
      Michael J. Waguespack      ( WAGUESPACK )
      David Kelly ( KELLYD )

FROM:          George J. Tenet
           (TENET)

SUBJECT:

Next Steps on Encryption

TO: DAVE KELLY
      MIKE WAGUESPACK

FROM: GEORGE J. TENET

RE: NEXT STEPS ON ENCRYPTION

There are number of items you need to follow up on on
encryption.

1. We have tasked Jim Kallstrom, Jeff Griveldinger, Ray
Kammer and Clint Brooks to produce a decsion memo wtih the
architecture and decisions needed for escrow implementation.
The paper should include all decisions that are pending and
need resolution to put a key escrow system in place.e.g.,
naming of a program manager etc. With regard to Program
Managers it should include pros and cons for vadous options.
It should be ready by next week. I will most likely be on
leave through next Wednesday.

2. I am baffled by Ray Kammers announcment that someone has
to ask Ron Brown to be a kay escrow holder. Please follow up
what is needed here.

3. Ray Kammer has been asked to put together a status report
of where we are for presentation in Baltimore on 1 September.
We will need a draft to review by late next week. Please
ensure that Clements and Barth have provided a thoughtful
export piece for Kammer.

4. We need to ensure that Commerce provides us with their
study on the availability of encryption products in export
markets that we have requested. Please check with Clements
to ensure that it is happening. If we need to send an Itoh
gram to Commerce and State have Clements draft one and lets
get it out of here,

5. Please ensure that Kmmaer is ready to announce the CRADA
for software on September 1 in Baltimore.

6. Please nail down a half day with the working group to
review our options papers. Preference is before labor day. Do
the best you can.

SECRET

MEMORANDUM FOR:
          Daniel B. Poneman

(PONEMAN)

FROM:          George J. Tenet
           (TENET)

SUBJECT:    eaa and software issues

dan:

we are on the basis of a lengthy meeting yesterday with Sue
Eckerd, and Bill Clements, finalizing our PRD and discussion
paper on exports for a restricted/modified principals meeting
on encryption that I hope can be scheduled for mid january.

Exports and digital telephony will be the two major issues on
the table. Ron Brown will attend for Commerce.

I will ensure that you have as much as you need on this
question. In return, I want to ensure that I am in the room
when this issue is raised in the context of EAA Tom
Kalil/Kyle have to be brought in as well. We need to ensure
that this is carefully coordinated. Unlike, telecom and
computers, this issue is the 500 pound gorilla for the
intelligence community so we need to make sure we are singing
off of the same sheet music.

We had a long meeting this morning in John Deutch's office on
encryption which included, Admirals, McConnel, Studeman. John
Podesta and other luminaries.

Next week, we should sit down and discuss all of this. I will
give you as much background as you may need. Clements and
Barth continue to work the issue for Commerce. Sue Eckerd and
I have established a good relationship all of this as well.

Have a merry Christmas with your family. GJT
