dc.description.abstractFor many years, people have talked about the advantages of programs that can roam networks and provide services for a client. The programs, called agents, have many military applications as well. Among them, for instance, is data mining, where an agent is dispatched to find information for a client. There are security risks associated with agents. For instance, in the data mining example, a client must be able to trust the information returned. If a trusted node in a network can be spoofed, then an untrusted node can easily corrupt the results of the mining operation. This thesis presents a protocol to guard against this sort of attack. The protocol assumes that every trusted host knows all other trusted hosts. Though unrealistic for some commercial applications, it seems like a reasonable assumption for military applications.en_US
