In this paper, for the radiative transport equation, we study inverse problems of determining a time-independent scattering coefficient or total attenuation by boundary data on the complementary sub-boundary after making a one time input of a pair of a positive initial value and boundary data on a suitable sub-boundary. The main results are Lipschitz stability estimates. We can also prove the reverse inequalities, which means that our estimates for the inverse problems are the best possible.
