Mobile agent paradigm relies heavily on security of both the agent as well as its host platform. Both of the entities are prone to security threats and attacks such as masquerading, denial-of-service and unauthorized access. Security fissures on the platform can result in significant losses. This paper produced a Robust Series Checkpointing Algorithm (SCpA) implemented in JADE environment, which extends the authors' previous work, keeping in mind the security of mobile host platforms. Mobile agents are the software programs capable of migrating from one host to another host in a network, at any time, at any place of their own choice. An agent is typically identified with a unit of execution.
