This paper considers the design of a security model for mobile agent based computing systems. The security model proposes the notion of a security enhanced agent that captures a variety of security information needed in the provision of security services. It defines the privileges of the agent required to perform the actions, the rights that other principals can have over the agent as well as delegation of privileges. The security model identifies security management and policy base components in agent enabled hosts which interpret the privileges and rights of agents and enforce the security controls.
