Modern cryptology was born in the late seventies and developed in the eighties. A decade since 1991 is the period of continuation of the development and new expansion of cryptology. In this paper we survey the development of cryptologic researches in this decade with emphasis on the results in Japan. We also present some future important works and propose the foundation of a public institution for evaluation of information security techniques.
