Abstract

Mobile agents are software entities able to move from one host to another across networks. They are autonomous and independent from the environment where they are hosted, as they transport all the necessary resources for their proper needs and execution. However, this mobility feature shows many security issues related to the maliciousness of hosts receiving agents and the unsafe communications with other entities encountered in the way. In this paper, we propose a new security scheme based on two techniques: anonymous authentication and intrusion detection. In the first one, we make use of elliptic curve cryptography known for its several advantages in distributed computing, while in the second, we make use of execution tracing method basing chaining mechanism to produce traces of the executed statements in the agent’s code. Practical experiments are conducted to prove the scalability and effectiveness of our approach, focusing on different metrics and compared to well-known and significant related works.
