■ Background of establishment In recent years, while IoT devices are becoming more popular, cyber attacks targeting IoT devices are increasing due to the large number of devices and difficult management.
In the “NOTICE” (* 1) initiative jointly conducted by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), it is possible to log in by setting inappropriate IDs and passwords, etc., until June 2019 It was reported that there were 147 IoT devices that were subject to alert (* 2).
Under these circumstances, Cocon started research and development on threat visualization in IoT devices as the Cocon Technology Laboratory (* 3) in August 2019.
We have visualized the vulnerabilities of IoT devices currently used in Japan, and have been working on mitigating security risks caused by IoT devices.
This time, we want to make sure that IoT devices can ensure appropriate security quality from the development process, and to make the world where IoT devices can be used safely and securely so that they do not become victims or perpetrators without the user’s knowledge.
So we spun out the project and established Zero Zero One.
With the establishment of Zero Zero One, Yuichi Sakakibara will be appointed as the representative director and CEO, and Katsuhiko Sato, who is acting as the head of the IoT analysis technology team in the Cocon Technology Laboratory, will become the representative director and CTO.
In addition, Satoshi Sugano (concurrently serving as Representative Director of Lepidum Co., Ltd.) and Daikon Katsurakawa, who has been commercialized as the director of the COCON Technology Laboratory, will work together as members of the COCON Group.
