Instant Messaging (IM) is a service for online communication over the Internet, providing communication between individuals and communities using text, stickers, files and videos. In the early days, Users in Taiwan use Instant messaging services such as MSN and Skype. But now a large number of users in Taiwan rely on the LINE. The use of LINE has expanded from individuals to government units and even military units. In September 2014, Korea strengthened its surveillance of Kakao Talk and LINE on the grounds to prevent the spread of anti-government speech on the Internet and accessing user’s private communication content. And so far, LINE has not yet planned to establish a dedicated computer server in Taiwan. In order to prevent the communication content of users who use LINE in Taiwan to cause other Countries who is not necessary to illegally obtain it by means of side recording, back door, Trojan horse, etc., but she can be monitored, read and analyzed by legal means to pose a threat to the Information security of Taiwan. In order to enhance the awareness of information security in military units in Taiwan. This study provides how to build a private Instant messaging service and database in her own computer room. Provide reference to the Information security strategy in Taiwan that use Instant messaging service on the premise of “Information security is National security”.
