I've convinced myself now that what's on my Solaris 7 CD's is
in fact the international version.  The US and Canada version has
a SUNWssld package containing strong SSL software.  My CD only has
SUNWssl, the "Global" version of the SSL software.

Sun doesn't appear to provide "global" and "US and Canada" versions
of SUNWski, so apparently the downloadable version and the one on
the CD are equivalent even though their checksums differ.

Sorry to raise such a ruckus about this.  I'm trying quite hard to
avoid accidentally introducing a weak link here.  Please feel free
to use the downloadable SUNWski, if you have the account to get to

Secure computing!
