Agent Smith

Brief: FRDCSA self-replication
Jump To: Parent Description

  • Agent Smith replicates the FRDCSA from a given existing instance of the FRDCSA. The user provides agent Smith with a configuration file containing credentials to log onto a remote system, then an intelligent agent with remote execution begins installing FRDCSA on the remote system. Right now, it assumes the target system is a vanilla version of the same Debian version as the source system, however, when the agent oriented aspects are further developed, it should be able to handle a wider range of target systems. We are experimenting with different agent oriented programming technologies until we find one that works. There is partial support for SRI's SPARK platform, but ideally prolog-agent would be used.
