Macro-level Attention to Mobile Agent Security: Introducing the Mobile Agent Secure Hub Infrastructure Concept [chapter]

Michelangelo Giansiracusa, Selwyn Russell, Andrew Clark, Volker Roth
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our infrastructural approach is based on a Mobile Agent Secure Hub (MASH) which is capable of providing a large number of security services for agent users and their deployed Internet mobile agents.  ...  We have devised an infrastructural strategy that allows mobile agent users to delegate responsibility to a trusted third party for the safe management of mobile agents they deploy onto the Internet.  ...  The second problem in Hohl's original reference states protocol is no longer an issue (in our adapted approach) because the inserted TTP delegate checking host has no stakeholder application interest in  ...
