Intrusion detection system (IDS), based on mobile agents, that detects intrusion from outside the network segment as well as from
inside. Mobile agent technology offers a new computing paradigm in which a program, in the form of a software agent, can suspend its
execution on a host computer, transfer itself to another agent-enabled host on the network, and resume execution on the new host. As the
sophistication of mobile software has increased over time, so too have the associated threats to security. This paper also researches the Agent
technology and analyzes the characteristics and architecture of it. Finally this paper proposes the advantages and disadvantages to apply the
mobile agent technology to intrusion detection systems, and points out the research direction of the intrusion detection systems based on mobile
agent technology with their limitations.
