"exploit licenses"

Perhaps "export licenses" ?

IIRC this was the situation with the US in the 80's with PGP being "exported" (by modem transfer) to that well known centre for international evil, Canada.

It's kind of like the British Meteorology Office (the Met office) actually being part of the MoD, or the UK mapping agency being the Ordnance (as in artillery and mortars) Survey
