We are pleased to announce that the next Membership Application period has been set as follows. We are looking forward to your application.


(1) As a Member of the MSS Forum, you are expected to carry out demonstration experiments to validate the effectiveness of MSS in various environments.

(2) The summary of the MSS Forum Bylaws is available on the website. If you require a full copy, please contact us via the Contact page (*only Japanese version is available at this moment; we apologize for the inconvenience.)

(3) Due to limited manpower and resources of the MSS Forum Secretariat, there is an eligibility screening process to examine whether participants possess appropriate engineering resources in order to limit the number of applicants to join the MSS Forum each time. In this round, 15 organizations will become Members.

(4)We understand that the materials provided by the MSS Forum still require R&D on its constituent technologies, hence they are provided on a loan basis and are prohibited to analyze, disassemble, reverse engineer or decompile. Please check the MSS Forum Bylaws for details.
