We conduct information security research
with a focus on access control.

Hashimoto Laboratory has just started in October 2015 at the Graduate School of Information Security. Our main research subjects are Access Control, Intrusion Detection and Prevention, and Operating System Security. Our aim is to contribute to the development of a more secure, pleasant, and prosperous information society through our research on theoretical and practical aspects of Access Control; we believe Access Control is one of the most important technical elements for the protection of information and communications.

Keywords related to our research involve: Information Flow Control, OSINT/Intelligence Mining, Cyber Attack and Hacking Techniques, Digital Forensics, Honeypot, Knowledge Processing, Policy Description Language, Logic Programming, SELinux, and TOMOYO Linux.

Additionally, we actively promote collaboration between industry, government and academia. Collaborative researches with the Japan Cybercrime Control Center (JC3), Ines Research Institute Inc., Deloitte Tohmatsu Risk Service Co., Ltd., etc. are ongoing.
