TOKYO DAYORI vol.56
[Topic]
Cyber-attacks on companies and others that have recently become popular.
What is pointed out as an increasing background is the existence of
a dark site where "hacking tools" and "personal information" etc. are
being sold.
This dark site is in a net space with a very high anonymity and
confidentiality called "dark web", and it is said that drugs, guns,
counterfeit ID, etc. are illegally traded in addition.
There are overseas reports that the surface web is less than 1% of the
whole net space, and most of the net space is the deep web that cannot
be easily obtained. Among them, the space that cannot be accessed
without using anonymizing software is "Dark Web".
The feature of "Dark Web" is very high anonymity and confidentiality.
"Tor (Tora)", typical anonymizing software, makes it difficult to
specify a sender by going through multiple foreign servers.
However, its anonymity and confidentiality are so powerful that
criminals have begun to exploit and form a dark site to escape from the
investigative authority.
According to last year's survey by researchers at the university in the
UK, around 57% of the dark web is considered the sites related to
illegal transactions.
The technology developed to protect privacy is being exploited by
criminals.
In July of this year, the judicial authorities in the United States
closed the world's largest dark website "Alpha Bay" in cooperation with
the authorities of each country.
Criminals get these tools and information from the dark site to carry
out the next crime, and Japanese companies and consumers are not
unrelated.
Recently, personal information of Japanese became prominent; in addition
there are driver's licenses, accounts of net payment services and net
postings for buying Japanese clinical data at a high price.
In Japan, there are warnings that both the government and companies are
delaying security measures, companies that start business to provide
information to Japanese companies by monitoring dark web hacker trends
are also appearing.

A new School term starts on April 1st in Japan.
I work for PTA(Parent-Teacher Association) activities for the first
time in 10 years in our elementary school.
People say, “Ten years make a short age.”  
To be honest, I felt a little bit worry to restart PTA activities,
because the advent of new technology might make me a deadwood.

[Topic ] Can Asian countries take initiatives for innovative technology?

Dear Gentle persons

I am Kazuki Yasui, taking care of Research & Information Division.
Most of Japanese are fed up with typhoons which have come near to us more than 10 times in this summer. Because of global warming, Japanese islands have become good sandbags for typhoons. And, luckily, we didn’t experience so much hot weather comparing with usual year.

[Topic ] Agricultural Drone

I have watched a video image of an agricultural drone which is splaying a crop with pesticides over a large farm stretching to the horizon.
The agricultural drone which I was interested in by the news report a few days ago is a little different. This drone was developed by Saga University, Saga prefecture and a Software company OPTiM together.

[Topic ] Beautiful butterflies in my garden

 I have seen some beautiful butterflies in my garden for several years.
They seem to be similar ones I saw in Indonesia as a business trip in 1990s.
My mother who lives in our next house asked me to seek a name of the butterfly through Internet. She does not connect Internet and cannot use mobile phone, either.

Reduction method for the telecom fee in my household

The stagnation in the Tokyo stock market from the beginning of the year symbolizes the rupture of " Abenomics " the economic policies of the current Japanese government.
After 8% of the consumption tax was introduced in April 2014, real GDP plunged about 14 trillion yen. Since then, real GDP include sluggish growth and the wages in the ordinary household are not increased. This tax increase amount was supposed to be pressure on the household budget.
