I don't use AIX, but I do not see crypt listed in the man pages for 5.3. (I was a bit surprised to find the game "craps" though...). Nor can I find crypt or pgp on the AIX specific freeware sites. Sorry for the bad news...

"1.904: Where is the crypt program?
The crypt *program* (as opposed to the crypt subroutine) has been
deleted to conform to U.S. law regarding export of missile,
ammunitions, nuclear and cryptographic technology.

Other programs such as PGP are available, but their use and/or
possesion may be subject to local laws and regulations.

France is such a place.

If anyone has a better answer to this question (like places where crypto
devices are illegal/severely restricted), feel free to contribute it."
