dc.description.abstract The Mobile Agent Paradigm has been around for sometime now. It has lately attracted attention in the field of Internet Applications. The major concern in implementing this paradigm is the security threats an agent and the agent platform face from other agents and agent platforms. To some extent these issues have been addressed with regard to preventing attacks. For effective prevention, we need to predict attacks. Given the complexity of the software, such predictions are not straightforward. In this work, a model has been developed to detect any harmful intent of an agent on the agent platform. The communication between the agent and the agent host is used as a parameter for this purpose. The various requests made by the agent on the agent platform are recorded in a database. The data forms an input to the Self Organizing Map. The resulting grouping of the data emerges into patterns. Locating patterns that are indicative of harmful intent and to detect the attack in real time is the main focus of this study. The Denial of Service attack of an agent on the agent platform has been considered for the testing phase of the model. This model may be extended to perform an Intention Analysis of Mobile Agents. Such an approach may be helpful in alerting those responsible for Network Management on various kinds of threats likely to emerge from the worldly agents. en_US
