Abstract

Mobile agents are software entities that can migrate autonomously throughout a network
from host to host. This means they are not bounded to the platform they begin execution. This feature
of agents makes them a very attractive technology, and in fact it has been argued many times in the
literature that mobile agents help to reduce network traffic and perform tasks more efficient.
However, security issues have not yet been fully investigated and in fact, mobile agent platforms
sometimes they neglect the security issues involved with agent mobility. This paper presents a
security related evaluation of 8 main mobile agent platforms.
