Port security is one of the most important fields of Vocational Education and Training (VET) maritime studies. In this article, we propose the configuration of entities that are used to design a port security information system for VET education. Our work integrates recent maritime Information Technology (IT) concepts into VET. We record the initial design for building educational software for a school-level security information system that can be used as an extension project for the existing maritime curriculum of VET. This plan, if implemented and completed, will strengthen and expand the boundaries of school knowledge and curriculum. This article describes the design part of the whole project.
