Main research

Information Security

As the world depends more and more on IT, the growing importance of information security is recognized. We conduct extensive research on information security to use IT appropriately and safely. The topics includes theories of cryptography and secret sharing, IoT including motor vehicles and sensors, security management including human activities, and privacy issues in big data.
