Organization of CRYPTREC
.
The organization of CRYPTREC in FY 2003-2008 was composed of the Cryptographic Technique Monitoring Subcommittee and the Cryptographic Module Subcommittee, which are positioned under the CRYPTREC Advisory Committee, as shown in the following chart (Ref. The present organization since FY 2013, The organization during FY 2009-2012).
CRYPTREC Organization
CRYPTREC Advisory Committee

The CRYPTREC Advisory Committee examines, from comprehensive viewpoints, monitoring of e-Government recommended ciphers; it handles investigation/examination for assurance of security and reliability of e-Government recommended ciphers, and also the establishment of security and test requirements for cryptographic modules.

The CRYPTREC Advisory Committee holds session as a study meeting of the Technical Administrative Councilor, the Minister's Secretariat of MIC, and the Director of Commercial Information Policy Bureau of METI, in which the Cabinet Secretariat, the National Police Agency, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Defence participate as observers.

Cryptographic Technique Monitoring Subcommittee

The Cryptographic Technique Monitoring Subcommittee is positioned under the Advisory Committee; it carries out monitoring of e-Government recommended ciphers, as well as investigation/examination placing focus on cryptographic algorithms related to e-Government recommended ciphers. The monitoring personnel who are engaged in the daily work are stationed at NICT and the IPA.

Also, the Cryptographic Technique Investigation WG has been established, under the Subcommittee, to engage in examination activity aimed at assisting the activities of the Subcommittee.

The Cryptographic Technique Monitoring Subcommittee 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 Defence, etc., participate as observers.

Cryptographic Module Subcommittee

The Cryptographic Module Subcommittee is positioned under the Advisory Committee; it engages in examination toward the establishment of security and test requirements for cryptographic module products conforming to e-Government recommended ciphers, paying attention to the trend of international standards, such as ISO/IEC, and considering the possibility that these requirements may be used as the standard for governmental procurement in the future.

In addition, the Subcommittee investigates and examines side channel attack and tampering in relation to cipher implementing technique, aiming to contribute to improvement of the above-mentioned security and test requirements.

The Cryptographic Module Subcommittee 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 Defence, etc., participate as observers.
