Nuclear Engineer Accused of Taking Computer Access Codes to Iran

The AP reports that a U.S. citizen that worked for 16 years as an engineer at Arizona's Palo Verde Nuclear Generation Station was recently arrested at LAX and charged with taking computer access codes and software to Iran and using the codes to download details of the plant's control rooms and reactors.

The story indicates that "according to court records, the software is used only for training plant employees, but allowed users access to details on the Palo Verde control rooms and the plant layout. In October, authorities alleged, the software was used to download training materials from Tehran, using a Palo Verde user identification."

In general, U.S. law prohibits U.S. persons from engaging in the unlicensed export of goods, technology (including technical data or other information subject to Export Administration Regulations) or services to Iran.
