Are our USENIX WOOT “weird machines” papers from various years regulated arms under the Dec. 2013 Wassenaar Arrangement definitions? They certainly seem to fit the bill, along with fuzzers, instrumentation frameworks, and any tools that automate vulnerability and exploitability analysis. If implemented as written, these rules control the basic artifacts and methods of security research, and will drastically chill the current security scene. When “modifying a program’s standard execution path” becomes a matter of export control, 1990s “Crypto Wars” may seem like a walk in the park by comparison; academic research will hardly remain unaffected.
