The paper presents a new mobile agent framework, f-Desktop, which is designed for describing follow-me applications in a ubiquitous computing environment. It provides the migration mechanisms for agent software which are secure against illegal call-up transaction requests from computers which masquerade as the owner of the agent software. Moreover, a follow-me application built with the f-Desktop framework possesses a high adaptability to computing environment and a high connection continuity against changes of location. In the f-Deskrop framework, a user can define his desktop computing environment, desktop or desktop environment in short, as a set of follow-me applications. Then, the user can take the desktop computing environment along to other computers
