The Japanese government aims at joining in the most advanced IT nations in the world within the next 5 years as a consequence of executing e-Japan Strategy. We have to ensure the security and reliability of the advanced info-communications networks in Japan for realization of our target. In particular, unbiased evaluation and standardization of cryptographic techniques are required as a basic item for the spread of digital authentication schemes like digital signatures and consequently for the construction of the electronic government, which is the governmental execution of e-Japan Strategy.
For this reason, following the last year project, we call for submitting cryptographic techniques, scrutinize the submitted cryptographic techniques, evaluate their security and performance and publicize the results as the CRYPTREC report 2001. The CRYPTREC report 2001 is supposed to be employed by Japanese government in many ways for their selection of cryptographic techniques used for constructing the electronic government.
Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan and Telecommunications Advancement Organization of Japan organizes the CRYPTREC Evaluation Committee consisting of experts in cryptology and evaluate the submitted cryptographic techniques.
