IT as a Basis of Social Infrastructure

In the 20th century, many information and communication technologies were developed and introduced in various social infrastructures. Governmental services, economical activities, energy supplies, transportation services and communication services are provided based on the information technology.

Rapid Progress of IT Changed Time Constants

Time of information transfer and processing has been shortened drastically by IT.(x10-6-10-9) Basic design of social systems was not supposed the speed-up of information spreading. Time constants of the systems are completely changed and the stability of the systems is not guaranteed.

Project Q
Experiments for New Social Information Infrastructures in moderately unrestricted society Campus Card with New ID system: PID + MIID New campus of IDs for students, staff with multiple usage Keys to buildings, facilities, and parking Kyushu University Access control to campus information Opened in 2005. E-money E-administration Services to Students NTT, Panasonic etc. RFID Tags to Equipments Library Equipments management Hazard identification Moving to the new campus

Kyushu University Cumpas IC Card Project

QUPID(Q-shu Univ. Personal ID)
Based on a new concept of ID System called PID (Personal ID) and MIID (Media Independent ID), we are trying to implement a campus ID system as an experimental social system. Through the project, we will get actual experiences on construction of social information infrastractue. We have already distribute 3,600 cards to students and faculties in Ito Campus.

PID (Personal ID) and MIID(Media Independent ID) System

2 3

Independent from Media of ID

ID management is independent from media (several types of IC card, mobile phone, USB devices and so on).

Support multiple service: Different service uses different subID

Different service uses different subID. We can implement a similar situation as each user has many different ID devices. Troubles or accidents in a service does not affect other services.

Implement flexible authentication and right control

Mutual authentication and complicated right control are available on the ID system.

Implementation of unlikability and secure privacy control

Service providers need not keep various personal information of users.
