ordinary Lynx does not contain encryption software
nor could it contain current e.s. for copyright & US-export reasons.
it is possible to obtain a version of Lynx which contains hooks
which allow e.s. to be compiled into it, but that's a special version.
you can obtain an encryption-free Lynx from .

NB this is a polite answer to your question:
it is not legal advice & carries no warranty of any kind.
use of any version of Lynx is ENTIRELY at your own risk.
for details, see the file  COPYING  in the distribution package.
