The IVEF service is the draft standard designed for exchange of information on sea traffic between the vessel traffic systems and between the vessels. Standardization of this service is under way as a part of the next-generation navigation system, called e-Navigation. The International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) suggests, on its recommendation V-145, the IVEF service model and the protocol for provisioning of this service. But the detailed configuration of this service must be

This study suggests, based on the basic service model and protocol provided in the recommendation V-145, the implementation of the J-VTS middleware which will facilitate exchange of information on sea traffic. The J-VTS middleware consists of various components for providing the IVEF service and for processing the IVEF message protocols. The vessel traffic systems and the vessels corresponding to upper-layer applications may use the IVEF service with the functions provided by the J-VTS middleware, and the services are designed to be accessed according to the security level of users.
