Overview of NICTER Project - Practical Cybersecurity R&D Project in Japan


To fight against highly sophisticated cyberattacks, continuous research on Cybersecurity technologies and their seamless deployments are key issues. NICT, a sole national research institute in ICT field in Japan, is researching cutting-edge Cybersecurity technologies such as a large-scale darknet (unused IP addresses) monitoring system NICTER, a darknet-based alert system DAEDALUS, and an anti-APT platform NIRVANA-KAI. In this talk, we present these technologies with real-time visualizations, and also show some case studies of their practical deployments in Japan.


Daisuke Inoue received his B.E. and M.E. degrees in electrical and computer engineering and Ph.D. degree in engineering from Yokohama National University in 1998, 2000 and 2003, respectively. He joined Communications Research Laboratory (CRL), Japan, in 2003. CRL was relaunched as National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in 2004, where he is currently the director of Cybersecurity Laboratory. He received several awards including the best paper award at the 2002 Symposium on Cryptography and Information Security (SCIS 2002), the commendation for science and technology by the minister of MEXT, Japan, in 2009, the Good Design Award 2013, the Asia-Pacific Information Security Leadership Achievements 2014, and the award for contribution to Industry-Academia-Government Collaboration by the minister of MIC, Japan, in 2016.
