Since the impact of the recent rapid penetration of Information Technologies into the society is so tremendous, it is said that IT revolution is coming. Recognizing the above new waves, the Japanese Government is now promoting e-Government programs, and most enterprises are going to depend on the Internet to do their various activities. However, computer criminals, and other threats to security are increasing and becoming serious. Therefore, 'security' is the key for the Internet to be infrastructure of the future society in a true sense. There are many products for security controls, which are not necessarily compatible or interoperable. Interoperability is the basic requirement for infrastructures. In April, 2000, JNSA was organized by about a hundred IT companies. On the other hand, in October, 2000, LINCS was set up in Kogakuin University. The two organizations set up a Consortium to make experimental studies on IPSec interoperability. This is the first report of the activities and intermediate (the first) results obtained.
