Abstract

Purpose: Mobile agent-based e-marketplace is one type of business application that has been developed as a flexible and efficient approach to help companies or corporations to extend their businesses to outreach larger markets without regional and continental boundaries. However, every distributed system is unable to avoid the security problems due to the open internet environment. Mobile agent-based e-marketplaces are no exception. Thus, the security of mobile agents is a crucial factor in the design of mobile agent-based e-marketplaces. To overcome this kind of problem, the purpose of this paper is to design and implement a framework and system of secure and trustworthy mobile agent based e-marketplace. Design/methodology/approach: This paper presents the system design for the system implementation based on the designed framework. It includes three major aspects: the design issues, system design and development environment and tools for system implementation. The system architecture, use case diagram and use case specifications are presented in the system design section. Findings: The system design is an essential step that is required before a prototype system is implemented. The system is designed based on the described and outlined requirements and evaluation criteria, therefore, to support a secure and trustworthy trading environment. The paper is concluded by discussing and highlighting further research work. Originality/value: This paper presents the system design for implementing a secure and trustworthy mobile agent-based e-marketplace system by using the latest version of UML modeling tool and techniques.
