Abstract:

Mobile code is computer code that is produced on one node of a computer network but is transferred and executed on another network node. A mobile agent is a mobile software module composed of autonomous mobile code. Mobile agent software is a promising new computing paradigm for distributed computing in a large computer network environment, because of the autonomy and efficiency of mobile code. In the course of the Mobile Code Security MCS project supported by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, a MCS Framework has been developed by Fraunhofer CRCG. The MCS Framework provides a multi-layered approach to safeguarding mobile agents, and includes technologies to support complete obfuscation, and encrypted execution and code watermarking technologies.
