We develop a web-oriented, human-in-the-loop infrastructure to explore how the service provider can secure their system, enforce instant access control over dynamic operator-robot connections, and ensure the integrity, availability, and traceability of communicated data. Our proposed minimal viable solution requires an authentication server to verify user identity, a back server with a database to handle user requests and state-transition events, and a RabbitMQ (RMQ) server to trace the origin of data.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.15.01.15}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Unmanned Vehicles (UVs), Web-oriented Architecture, Multiple Unmanned Vehicles, Environmental Shipping Monitoring Center (ESMC), Robot Operating System (ROS), Risk-aware Autonomous Port Inspection Drone (RAPID), Transport Layer Security (TLS), Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS)} }
