Modern communication and computing devices have the potential to increase the efficiency of disaster response. Mobile agents are a decentralized and flexible technology to leverage this potential. While mobile agent platforms suffer from a greater variety of security risks than the classic client-server approach, Trusted Computing is capable of alleviating(More)
The concept of Trusted Computing (TC) promises a new approach to improve the security of computer systems. The core functionality, based on a hardware component known as Trusted Platform Module (TPM), is integrated into commonly available hardware. Still, only limited software support exists, especially in the context of grid computing. This paper discusses(More)
Software independence from hardware platforms is an important feature of growing significance, given the emergence of new distributed computing paradigms. It would be desirable to extend the Trusted Computing mechanisms offered by the Trusted Platform Module into the platform independent Java environment. However, there is currently no generally accepted(More)
