Researches on software vulerabilities


Today, vulnerabilities in the software used on/for the Internet are becoming a serious security problem. We work on such situation by collecting daily information, analyzing the real cause of the problems from the scientific point of view, to propose a resolution, guideline, software fixes, and the verification methods.

For each vulnerabilities found during the research, we cooperate with software developers, IPA, JPCERT/CC, CERT/CC and other organizations to fix the problem.
