Advisory Board for Cryptographic Technology

The Advisory Board for Cryptographic Technology examines, from comprehensive viewpoints, investigation/examination for assurance of security and reliability of CRYPTREC ciphers, revision of the CRYPTREC Ciphers List, and also the promotion of IT security measures by pervading the cryptographic technology.

The Advisory Board for Cryptographic Technology holds session as a study meeting of Director-General for ICT Strategic Policy Planning of MIC, and the Director-General of Commerce and Information Policy Bureau of METI, in which the Cabinet Secretariat, the National Police Agency, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications(MIC), the Ministry of Justice, the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry(METI) and the Ministry of Defense participate as the observers.

Cryptographic Technology Evaluation Committee

The Cryptographic Technology Evaluation Committee is positioned under the Advisory Board; it investigates and examinens the following tasks:
(1) Monitoring and evaluation of the security and implementation properties of the cryptographic technology (including the evaluation of SHA-3);
(2) Research on new-generation cryptographic technology (such as lightweight cryptography, security parameters, pairing cryptography, and post-quantum cryptography);
(3) Research on the secure utilization of cryptographic technology (maintenance of technical guidelines; academic research on the security of cryptography and its publication).

Also, working groups are positioned under the Committee, to support its activity in research and examination.

The Cryptographic Technology Evaluation Committee holds session as a committee meeting of NICT and IPA, in which the MIC, METI, the National Police Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defense, etc., participate as observers.

The Cryptographic Technology Evaluation Committee was set up in FY 2013 to succeed all tasks of The Cryptographic Scheme Committee and some tasks of The Cryptographic Module Committee, which had been operated from FY 2009 through FY 2012.

Cryptographic Technology Promotion Committee

The Cryptographic Technology Promotion Committee is positioned under the Advisory Board; it investigates and examinens the following tasks:
(1) Research on the promotion of cryptographic technologies and the strengthening of security industries;
(2) Research on the utilization status of cryptographic technologies and research of their promotion strategy;
(3) Research on the strategy of cryptographic policy from mid-and-long term viewpoints.

The Cryptographic Technology Promotion Committee holds session as a committee meeting of NICT and IPA, in which the MIC, METI, etc., participate as observers.

The Cryptographic Technology Promotion Committee was set up in FY 2013 to succeed all tasks of The Cryptographic Operation Committee and some tasks of The Cryptographic Module Committee, which had been operated from FY 2009 through FY 2012.
