Extending the buddy model to secure variable sized multi agent communities
2005 (English)In: Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Safety and Security in Multiagent Systems, 2005, 59-75 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper describes an extension of the Buddy model of agent security. The Buddy model provides a security layer that encapsulates all agents within the multi - agent community and therefore, extends a security cover to all agents of the community. While the current model is able to service several scenarios involving fixed sized agent communities, it does not consider variable sized agent communities. This paper describes an extension to the existing model that covers this aspect. The proposed extension increases the application coverage and flexibility of the Buddy model and makes it a potent security mechanism for multi-agent communities. Further, the paper establishes that agent migration does not lead to any schema operating overheads; on the contrary it contributes to maintaining an effective level of performance integrity within the schema.
