Ciar?n Bryce, "A Security Framework for a Mobile Agent System", September, 2000


This paper describes a distributed security infrastructure for mobile agents. The first property of the infrastructure is believability this means that mechanisms are provided for authenticating information furnished by an agent. A second security property is survivability. This means that an agent computation can be programmed to survive attacks by malicious hosts on individual agents; this is achieved through encryption as well as agent replication and voting. The main feature of the infrastructure is hat mobile agents are themselves used to enforce the security properties.
