|Title:||Network Security Testing Using Mobile Agents|
|Published:||March 25, 1998|
|Abstract:||This paper describes a prototype security testing tool that is currently under development at NIST. This prototype tool uses autonomous mobile agents to perform distributed, fault-tolerant, and adaptive network security testing. The security testing prototype is compared to existing methods, the design goals are outlined, its testing methodology is described, and the advantages and disadvantages of using mobile agents are discussed.|
