Subject: 3DES key-length


I would like to know the key-length used for 3DES data encryption in
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,
