Recent days, the systems based on mobile agents have attracted the attention of many researchers in different areas, because of the autonomic and pro-active aspects of the agent, as well as its adaptive and dynamic behaviors in solving complex problems. However, the mobility of these entities needs to be secured against multiple vulnerabilities that present a real obstacle to its wide expansion. When the mobile agent is migrating from one node to another over the network, it is difficult to guarantee that it will be executed safely and correctly on the hosting platform, neither that it will not encounter in its way malicious entities that try to harm it.
