KEK Computer Security
These documents give information about computer security of KEK. Some information is obsolete, but still useful.

As our new strategy for security issue, we set "KEK Information Security Policy" (in Japanese) , which all users of KEK computing facilities are subject to. The use of KEK's computing resources, such as computers, network and related service are governed by this policy. This document describes, in somewhat legalistic language, the rules and conditions which apply to the use of KEK's computing resources. And also, subsidiary "rules of use" based on this policy is now under documentation.
