Abstract: Mobile agent technology offers a new computing paradigm in which a program in the form of a software agent can transfer its execution from agent. This agent masquerading itself as the original source of message. The use of mobile code has a long history dating back to the use of remote job entry systems in the 1960's. This articles illustrates agent incarnations which can be characterized in a number of ways ranging from simple distributed objects to highly secured software with algorithm that can only be interpreted by only the sender and the receiver. As the sophistication of mobile software has increased over time with its associated threats, This article studies masquerading as one of these threats and provides appropriate solution in the form of algorithm.
