Shiv Kumar [16] | Shrawan Kumar [4]

Abstract: Mobile agent technology has become a new paradigm for distributed real-time systems because of their inherent advantages. In any distributed system; along with other issues; survivability and fault tolerance are vital issues for deploying mobile-agent systems. E-business becoming a prominent domain for deploying agent technology; it also faces reliability problems due to the failure of agent platform and communication link etc. The reliability is a factor that may affect the performance; availability; and strategy of mobile agent systems. Agent technology is a field of considerable active research. Various classes of agents (e. g. intelligent agents; software agents) have emerged so far. Software agents are useful for distributed systems & electronic commerce. However to fully deploy software agents in practice; a number of challenging issues especially security; fault tolerance and privacy need to be addressed. The scope of this discussion is limited to mobile agents in a multi agent environment for Electronic Business applications. Electronic commerce is one of the most important application areas of mobile agent technology. A secure mobile agent system (SMAS) model is established for e-commerce environment. E-Commerce and M-Commerce can help a company or enterprise to extend its market place to unlimited region
