Mobile Agent Based Communication using AES and RSA

Mandeep Kaur, Sharad Saxena



Mobile agents have got large amount of attention of researchers. Because of mobile agents, the distributed computing over the internet has been more safe and secure. Mobile agents are software modules, contain data itself and able to move autonomously from one host to other to perform tasks and automatically come back to the host where they were initialized. Although they have so many qualities such as dynamism, autonomy, flexibility etc. that are required for some disciplines yet mobile agent have some limitations mainly the security issues due to mobility. In our work, we have secured mobile agents’ communication using AES and RSA algorithms, and then we have compared the performance of these algorithms (RSA and AES) for securing communication in mobile agents.
