I would like to know the key-length used for 3DES data encryption in openssh.
I thought that it should be 192 (3 * 64) bits, but the sshd man page states 128 bit key used for 3DES.
Also, I would like to know the 3des key negotiation - who generates the key (the client or the server).
I am interested in the export regulations concerning openssh in USA. Any idea on this ?

I would really appreciate your help,
