Container security systems including electronic seals play an important role in securing container logistics. Nevertheless, a lack of standards prevents devices by different vendors from effective interoperability. Hence, this paper proposes an interdisciplinary perspective incorporating the agent paradigm of computer science. In this approach interaction between different autonomous entities is based on standardised communication protocols. In addition, for container security systems a cryptographic concept must be applied in order to secure communication.
