We hold "Updating Quantum Cryptography 2008 " following the last year.
The application to industries, such as development of the communications equipment using quantum cryptography technology and service testing, has started.

In order to advance utilization and industrialization, just the advancement of quantum cryptography technology is inadequate, and it is necessary to advance effective fusion on modern cryptography technology or photonic network technology.
At this conference, the policy for it and a future subject are implemented for the purpose of clarifying in the their native country case.The researchers who lead research and development of quantum cryptography technology, modern cryptography technology, and photonic network technology give a lecture about introduction of the newest trend, and discuss a future fusion scheme.

Furthermore, the policy for research-and-development promotion of information and telecommunications and security technology will also introduce from the person in charge of the Cabinet Secretariat, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.The mutual information about the trend of leading-edge technology and future should exchange and share.Moreover, we want to discuss the effective promotion policy towards utilization and standardization of quantum cryptography technology.

We look forward to active participation from researchers, engineers, vendors and users.

In closing, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all parties concerned for their generous efforts in making this international conference possible.
