BouncyCastle has the big advantage of being Australian, and hence immune to the silly American laws about exporting strong encryption. If Canadians use BouncyCastle they need not worry about that law, since the code is not American. If Americans use it, they can still get in trouble just for incorporating Australian encryption code even though it did not originate in America. If you are an American and have a product then implements or uses encryption, best talk to a lawyer. The laws are idiotic since encryption algorithms are public domain and widely disseminated. All the laws do is cripple American software company exports.
