M-learning continues and extends the learning paradigms and styles derived from a classroom lecture-and-seminar model, now made accessible through Web-based delivery and mobile devices. In an environment, in which circumstances make using a laptop inappropriate, a handheld device offers a convenient alternative. Communicating with anything and everything via wireless can open new opportunities for individuals looking for easy electronic access, navigation, mobility to access the education information anywhere and anytime. However, managing security for m-learning users is one of the more challenging aspects. The paper discusses a multi-agent high-level architecture for the security service. The proposed model is based on ontologies and a mediator for security service agents. Ensuring security of communication and privacy via a cooperative set of services is important for both consumer and m-learning environment. The proposed model for security service architecture is supporting the intelligent security management in the sense that can more accurately work at the human conceptual level.
