  • Patent number: 10764334
    Abstract: A communication system includes a communication device configured to execute a process related to a cyber security solution in accordance with policy information defining execution details of the process related to the cyber security solution. The communication system includes a change unit configured to change the policy information, wherein the change unit changes the policy information after a state of the communication device in a process of manufacturing the communication system transitions from a first state where the communication device is mounted to the communication system to a second state where a predetermined process is executed thereafter so that the execution details of the process related to the cyber security solution in the second state are expanded more than the execution details in the first state.
