AbstractAdvanced Intelligent agents provide a tremendous benefit to the collection and analysis of information on computer networks. Unfortunaltely, intelligent agents are also susceptible to re-programming in such a manner as to cause them to mis-report, or not report at all. It is possible to intercept the message of an intelligent agent, and "spoof" or re-program the response so that operations appear normal. The best intentions and value of intelligent agents can be undone using these tactics. Asier Technology, along with Sentar, Inc. propose to develop an advanced, secure system for deploying intelligent agents across a network, and to assure that the agents cannot be intercepted or re-programmed without full knowledge and support of the network administration. Both companies intend to use existing technologies, developed by their respective companies, to create this method of secure agent deployment.
