We propose a security model for open multi-agent systems. Given a user-defined task T, we generate a group of mobile agents which realise a common functionality that solves T. Those agents cooperate with each other and build an autonomous community. Using a scheme for secure distributed computations, this community is able to perform secure computations without requiring interaction
with a trusted party. To get some formal security guarantees we incorporate Canetti's model for secure multi-party computations into the agent setting. Canetti's model assumes stationary parties and so does not cover the agents' migration process. But we will present a solution to this. Thus, we yield guarantees for code, data
and execution integrity, data privacy and prevention from
