Smartwork has been thought to satisfy both employee and company's interests. Nonetheless, there are critical barriers of introducing smartwork because of security problem. In order to derive threats and vulnerabilities of smartwork, the authors derive threats through structured interview with heavy users or designers of smartwork, then verify the derived threats by survey. Three layers, which are devices/networks/servers, are proposed as a common framework for analyzing characteristics of two types of smartwork. Recently, according to the concern of environmental pollution and quality of life, smartwok has been increasing. Smartwork refers to a work flexibility arrangement under which an employee performs the duties and responsibilities of such employee's position, and other authorized activities.
