11. A PDA Security Policy Enforcement Tool
Published: 7/9/2002
Authors: Athanasios T Karygiannis, Wayne Jansen, Serban Ilie Gavrila, Vlad Korolev
Abstract: This paper describes a proof-of-concept implementation of a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) Security Policy Enforcement Tool developed by NIST. This tool can assist enterprise security administrators in setting, updating, monitoring, and enforcing g ...

12. Assigning and Enforcing Security Policies on Handheld Devices
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Wayne Jansen, Athanasios T Karygiannis, Serban Ilie Gavrila, Vlad Korolev
Abstract: The proliferation of mobile handheld devices, such as Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and tablet computers, within the workplace is expanding rapidly. While providing productivity benefits, the ability of these devices to store and transmit corpo ...

13. Privilege Management of Mobile Agents
Published: 10/1/2000
Authors: Wayne Jansen, Athanasios T Karygiannis
Abstract: Most mobile agent systems use internal data structures within an agent to control and specify its security requirements and properties. These structures typically contain authorization information regarding access to computational resources on distri ...

14. Security Implementations of Active Content
Series: ITL Bulletin
Published: 3/30/2000
Authors: Wayne Jansen, Athanasios T Karygiannis
Abstract: Active content documents offer several benefits to both the users of these documents and their authors. Java applets, JavaScript, and ActiveX provide more functionality to static Web pages, plug-ins enable browsers to support new types of content, Po ...

15. Applying Mobile Agents to Intrusion Detection and Response
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6416
Published: 10/1/1999
Authors: Wayne Jansen, Athanasios T Karygiannis, D G. Marks, Peter M Mell
Abstract: Effective intrusion detection capability is an elusive goal, not solved easily or with a single mechanism. However, mobile agents go a long way toward realizing the ideal behavior desired in an Intrusion Detection System (IDS). This report is an init ...

16. Mobile Agent Security
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-19
Published: 10/1/1999
Authors: Wayne Jansen, Athanasios T Karygiannis
Abstract: 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 h ...

17. Network Security Testing Using Mobile Agents
Published: 3/25/1998
Author: Athanasios T Karygiannis
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 testin ...
