AbstractPassword-based authentication is the most common authentication method for either online or offline system. Password composition policies become too burdensome and put the user in a state of struggle to remember their password. Thus, most of the user save their password on the browser or even list it down in their personal gadgets. Therefore, a multi agent-based password management application have been developed to helps user in keeping their password safely. However, multi-agent system facing security issues such as man in the middle attack, data modification and eavesdropping. This paper proposed a security protocol for multi agent-based architecture in order to reduce potential threats. The security protocol focuess on the authentication of mobile agents, data transmission and the data local protection. The communication channels are secured using cryptography techniques.
