Agent communities, security vulnerabilities and the Buddy model of security: applicability and effectiveness
2004 (English)In: Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Advanced Computing and Communications: ADCOM 2004 / [ed] A.R. Dasgupta; S.S. Iyengar; H.S. Bhatt, Allied Publishers Ltd , 2004, 316-324 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The paper examines the applicability and the effectiveness of the Buddy model of security proposed for countering security vulnerabilities experienced by mobile agent communities. The paper describes the security vulnerabilities that arise within mobile agent communities and demonstrates the Buddy model operation as an effective countermeasure for securing the agent community operation. The Buddy model involves all mobile agent community members in sharing the security function operation. This reduces the limitations and the dependence of the model on a particular agent and leads to the distribution of the security threat equally over all community members. A performance analysis of the schema is given to illustrate the advantages and the reliability of the Buddy model in a mobile agent community scenario.
