halls-of-valhalla writes: "The Japanese National Police Agency have decided to take a new approach to fighting cybercrime. Police officials will join hacking communities and create relationships with hackers to collect information.

The agency will also be hiring and training more staff with technical knowledge in fields relating to the Internet, smartphones, and information security.

This new policy also specifically mentions Tor, an onion routing network which uses multiple layers of encryption to preserve anonymity while browsing the web. This new strategy by the Japanese police states that they will consider limiting access to connections using tools like Tor."
