This chapter introduces the topic of information technology for a safe and secure society in Japan and shows an emerging trend toward a cyber-physical solution. It begins by reviewing major security incidents in the United States and Japan, and presenting the Japanese national strategy for information security. It then describes various emerging security technologies in Japan, starting with an overview of the two levels of security technology: the component level, such as finger vein authentication and RFID, and the system and management level, such as a multiple risk communicator. Each of these technologies is discussed in turn. The chapter also covers various issues related to mitigating information leakage.
