KISTI to Launch International Academic Exchange with Japan in the Field of Information Protection (August 23)
□ The Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) held the first international joint workshop with Japan’s National Institute of Informatics (Director: Masaru Kitsuregawa, NII) from 23 to 24 August.
□ With 5 sessions and 11 theme presentations, the workshop was an occasion to share technology and knowhow related with the development and operation of information protection research carried out by the two institutes, with the aim of “sharing security control R&D technologies and discussing joint research.”
○ KISTI explained about their science & technology cyber safety center, research activities, and internal R&D systems (SMARTer, VizSpacer, VizCosMos) and presented on research topics (malicious IP detection based on classification and analysis of DarkNet IP, machine learning research for IDS detection).
○ NII shared progress on security control and malicious code detection, presented research trends (strengthened security for academic groups, wireless communications system physical layer security) and topics (displaying residual risk by detecting internal terminal infection, detecting point of change for event data and large-scale time series).
□ KISTI Director Hee-Yoon Choi stated that such “academic exchange with prestigious overseas institutes like NII is a great opportunity to affirm the international standing of KISTI’s information protection research and to promote mutual development,” expressing hopes to “enhance information protection in Korean and Japan by making the workshop a regular event.”
