Interoperability is the ability of various systems to work together and the ability of a system to work or be used by other systems. The purpose of this study is to examine the use of information technology owned by maritime border security institutions in carrying out tasks at the Malacca Strait border between Indonesia and Malaysia, as well as to evaluate and discover new concepts in the context of interoperability between marine border security institutions. The research was carried out using a descriptive qualitative method with a research design that included conducting interviews and observations, as well as analyzing primary and secondary data. According to the findings of this study, there are currently 17 institutions that deal with marine areas, each with their own duties and functions, but they do not understand the territorial element, where the sea is not viewed as a whole. From the results of this study, it can be concluded that it is necessary to harmonize, synergize and collaborate between agencies so that coordination can be well established when securing the Malacca Strait with coastal countries, such as Malaysia and Singapore, as well as improving coordination between institutions within the government.
