Countering security vulnerabilities using a shared security buddy model schema in mobile agent communities

This paper examines the security vulnerabilities faced by agent communities implemented using agent and multi-agent systems. It attempts to define security from an agent as well as from an agent community perspective. To preserve the integrity and sanctity of the community model, it proposes the use of a shared-security schema. This schema distributes the security function of the community among all valid members. The advantage of this schema is that one or more valid agent community members scrutinize the integrity of every agent. All agents are in turn subject to an integrity check. This chain-reaction approach helps in mitigating the risk of malicious attacks from other agents and entities external to the community.
