Ciar?n Bryce, "Police Agents for Enforcing Internet Security", July, 1999


Mobile Agents have promised much as an Internet programming technology, but well pub-licized security problems are hampering their acceptance. This paper argues that mobile agents are a vital component of any Internet security solution. For instance, agents can move computations to safe areas, and can replace out-dated security mechanisms that adapt poorly to the Internet. To underline this argument, the paper proposes a security archi-tecture that uses mobile agents as its basic mechanism. The semantics of agent security policies in this architecture is also given.
