The inherent qualities of agent technology make it a perfect choice for many real world applications. However this usefulness can be undermined due to problems incurred by the lack of fault tolerance and security in Multi Agent Based Applications. In this paper we have proposed an infrastructure which provides fault tolerance (at both agent and system level) and security. An algorithm similar to the sliding window model ensures the agent level fault tolerance, while the system level fault tolerance has been provided by dynamic discovery of alternate paths. The proposed framework is envisaged to be used in critical financial applications like Banking applications, E-commerce, Stock exchange etc. Therefore security is provided by means of Triple DES Algorithm for encryption/ decryption and MD5 Algorithm for the integrity of the message.
