Security of Mobile Agents

Abstract

The Internet is continuously extending to mobile devices. This implies that applications should be tailored to make efficient use of the limited resources of such devices. Mobile agents are a promising solution for this purpose. However, secure protocols are required in order to assure confidentiality and integrity of the data such an agent collects. This paper describes 6 such security protocols presented in the scientific literature. These protocols are analyzed with respect to a series of security requirements that should be satisfied by such protocols. An overview of some published attacks on these protocols and the proposed solutions is also presented.
