Abstract

The Personal Mobility Management System (PMMS), an agent-based message-oriented mobile computing application developed at Multimedia and Mobile Agent Research Laboratory, aims to provide personalized services and resources access to its nomadic users within a virtual network across different organizations. This paper analyses and discusses the security weaknesses exposed in the system architecture, then proposes several security frameworks to overcoming these security concerns. The paper tries to address and provide a general architectural solution to ensure secure communications for a typical message-oriented mobile computing system.
