SAgent: a security framework for JADE
This paper presents SAgent, a general-purpose mobile agent security framework that is designed to protect the computations of mobile agent applications in potentially hostile environments. SAgent works with the JADE (Java Agent DEvelopment) platform [6], a FIPA-compliant multi-agent environment. SAgent supports modular and mostly orthogonal development of agent protection techniques and secure agent applications, so protocols and applications can be developed independently of each other. To accomplish this, a clean conceptual framework is presented which encapsulates in several general class interfaces the common security functionality required by secure agent applications. Furthermore, implementations are provided for two secure multi-agent protocols, and we give experimental results showing the feasibility of these protections. While a few other research projects have examined protocols and techniques for protecting agents, these have been theoretical explorations. SAgent's goa...
