Computer systems and networks have become increasingly important to our modern life. These information and communications technologies, or ICT, are the foundation that enables apps on our smartphones, that provide information security, that allow our mobile devices to connect wirelessly to the cloud. In the future, this trend is clearly increasing as "smart technologies" combine to form the Internet of Things. In addition, ICT investment has a close relationship to corporate performance, and has become a key driver of national growth strategy. The Security and Networks Research Area at JAIST performs research and graduate education on the fundamentals of ICT systems, to make wide-ranging contributions to industry, standardization activities and governmental policy making.
