The aim of this chapter is to provide an overview of security issues facing mobile agent systems, and discuss ways of managing them. We explore the state of the art, to assess if it is mature enough for use in real-life security-critical applications like extraction of sensitive information, contract signing or broadly understood e-commerce.
