Abstract: Security issues associated with mobile agents and host resources have raised serious obstacles in practical applications of multi-agent system paradigm which is a vital component of mobile computing applications. These security considerations have hindered its scope of relevance in the industry. Mobile computing is a hot area of research and a good number of researchers have made remarkable efforts at overcoming the security threats linked to multi-agent systems. The scope of this study, therefore, is limited to the survey and analysis of the existing security techniques for multi-agent systems. It studies the available security solutions by researchers for multi-agent systems and analyse them based on performance, requirements, complexity and their support for agent mobility.
