Abstract

Mobile agents, which are used for building distributed systems effectively, are autonomous programs that can travel through a computer network to fulfill their tasks. For practical use of mobile agents, protecting agents and platforms is an extremely important matter. Nevertheless, few security techniques exist for the DASH agent framework, which supports agent mobility. Other agent frameworks such as JADE, Agent Scape also have their own security mechanisms, but these frameworks are not updated frequently. Therefore, these frameworks cannot handle many of the latest security issues. As described herein, we introduce security techniques for DASH to maintain the mobile agent platform and to secure the agents against malicious platforms and agents.
