Mobile agent security using proxy-agents and trusted domains
Mitrovic, Nikola ; Arronategui Arribalzaga, Unai
Abstract: Commercial or wide-network deployment of Mobile Agent Systems is not possible without satisfying security architecture. In this paper we propose architecture for secure Mobile Agent Systems, using Trusted Domains and Proxy agents. Existing approaches are based on security services at the level of an agent system, library or specific objects. Our concept uses proxy agents to enable transparent security services both to security-aware mobile agents and legacy agents. Per-agent and domain-level security is provided. Proposed concept can be used with non-compatible environments and legacy systems.
