System-related Services

Operation of Governmental Certification Infrastructure System

For the realisation of digital government, GPKI (Government Public Key Infrastructure) has been built and operated by Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications as an infrastructure to enable online application and notification from citizens, etc. to administrative agencies.
As the certificate authority on the administration side, GPKI has two functions: as a Bridge Certificate Authority that performs cross-certification with non-governmental certificate authorities on the side of applicants (since April, 2001), and as a Government Shared Certificate Authority that issues e-certifications for the offices in ministries (since January, 2008).
We conduct administration and operation of GPKI based on consignment.

Operation of Government shared network

Government shared network is the network infrastructure specialised for government use mutually connected with all ministries, Independent Administrative Institutions, the Bank of Japan, the National Diet, Government Shared System and Local Government Wide Area Network (LGWAN). It is operated by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications for the purpose of distributing and sharing information among government administrations smoothly.
39 organizations use it as of July, 2015. We conduct administration and operation of it based on consignment.
