Abstract

Security and privacy are key issues for open Multiagent Systems in which previously unknown parties can interact to each other. There are some Agent Platforms that provide support for both security and privacy. However, these Agent Platforms fail to provide openness and interoperability that are also crucial for developing secure and open Multiagent Systems. In this paper we present a security infrastructure that is based on open standards (AMQP, SSL, SASL, X.509 certificates, WS-Security, FIPA-ACL) and open-source technologies (Qpid, NSS, Axis2, Rampart). This infrastructure provides unique features regarding security and privacy on the one hand, and openness and interoperability on the other hand.
