I'm moderator of crypto-SE and wonder if this question would be on-topic if migrated to Law-SE. The meat of it is:

Is it legal to develop a cipher-breaker software/algorithm? What about it's legality in India?

2 Answers 2


I know next to nothing about cipher-breaker software or algorithms so I can't say for certain, but questions asking whether something is lawful or not are definitely on-topic here - as long as they're not asking for specific legal advice.


While on topic we require some minimum standards to explain what the problem is. The migrated question is lacking most of the facts that would show if it is legal or illegal.

    Sorry about that. I wish the OP can add details.
