VTS is an important marine traffic monitoring system which is designed to improve the safety and efficiency of navigation and the protection of the marine environment. And the demand of Inter-VTS networking has been increased for realization of e-Navigation as shore side collaboration for maritime safety. And IVEF for Inter-VTS network has become a hot research topic of VTS system. There has been lots of security requirements of IVEF and Inter-VTS network to prevent hacking of sensitive maritime surveillance information caused accident such as vessel, human life and environment. This paper aims to design of a secure inter-VTS network security structure and security protocol based on sharing of sensitive maritime data. The proposed architecture provides secure mechanism and also provides secure information sharing for aids to navigation.
