In this paper, we provide a solution for the implementation of protection mechanisms using platform services. Implementation of protection mechanisms is the main obstacle of secure mobile agent applications. A cryptographic service can allow agents to self protect their code and data. The implementation of such a service is far from trivial. We provide some schemes for programming this implementation. We have implemented this cryptographic service in the MARISM-A/JADE platform, using Java. Any application using mobile agents can use our mechanisms to implement agent protection. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2003.
