Abstract

After a general presentation of intelligent agents, their areas of use, as well as their advantages and disadvantages, in this thesis three main aspects of mobile agents are explored: 1. Dynamic security system: Agents must be assessed according to their owner (configuration and goals) as well as the programmer of their code. An agent should also be granted permissions according to payment for them as well as any additional usage. 2. Payment for services by agents themselves: Immediate payment is desirable if agents draw on resources or utilize services. Data used for payment must be protected from illegal access and secured against loss or modifications. 3. Legal aspects: When using agents, legal questions like validity of their actions or liability for damages through undesirable conduct arise. In a practical view, method for securing evidence are required. An agentsystem implemented in Java is introduced, which incorporates these three aspects. Finally, some agents as well as systems of agents are presented, which show the functionality of the system.
