The whole world seems to have gone crazy with regulations regarding restrictions on use or export of cryptography. Hannah Bowen did a fairly extensive survey of applicable laws in various countries. The new rules for Australia under the Wassenaar Arrangement are available from ADFA.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has been doing a lot to fight against some of these regulations.
Lucy Chubb has produced an Australian version of the not-for-export RSA T-shirt. I am not sure if it is legal for me to wear it when I am walking onto United flight UA 863 in San Francisco or not, so I won't do that in future. (Actually, I can get a personal use exemption...)
Speaking of archives and places to get information, there are a number of very good ones around. If you are looking to get PGP, and are outside the US, any of these places should have it (but see above). These are not simply mirrors of each other; it is probably worth browsing them when you are looking for something interesting.
The PGP Moose is a PGP based application which allows newsgroup moderators to authenticate postings, and which automatically cancels unauthentic postings.
As party of my work for QUALCOMM, I was examining the security of the cellular authentication and privacy system, and while looking at CMEA, it broke... I wasn't really allowed to talk about it but David Wagner, Bruce Schneier and John Kelsey duplicated much of my work. If you dig deep enough in their press release you'll find where they acknowlege me. This made the front page of the NY Times, too...
I also developed a new stream cipher called SOBER.
