Mobile agent offers a new programming paradigm in which a program can move from one node to another node in a network. Since data as well as code move at the same time, security issue becomes more important than traditional RPC system. To overcome the security hurdles, this paper presents a new model based on existing Aglets architecture. A new service agent along with a policy file is incorporated with the existing Aglets architecture. This novel service agent which controls & co-ordinates all communication between the agent and the platform provides an extra layer of security by a set of API. This extra layer of security in Aglets will enhance the overall security of the platform.
