Proposed applications for mobile code systems include autonomous shopping agents, autonomic systems, distributed sensor network applications, and interstellar space networks. I argue the case for mobile code systems as the next-generation distributed programming paradigm and discuss the security problems that must be addressed before this vision is practically realizable. The security discussion will focus on protecting mobile code programs that execute in the wild from malicious actions by remote hosts.
