dc.description.abstractProtocol heterogeneity is pervasive and is a major obstacle to effective integration of services in large systems. However, standardization is not a complete answer. Standardized protocols must be general to prevent a proliferation of standards, and can therefore become complex and inefficient. Specialized protocols can be simple and efficient, since they can ignore situations that are precluded by application characteristics. One solution is to maintain agents for translating between protocols. However, n protocol types would require agents, since an agent must exist for a source - destination pair. A better solution is to create agents as needed. This paper examines the issues in the creation and management of protocol translation agents. We focus on the design of Nestor, an environment for synthesizing and managing RPC protocol translation agents. We provide rationale for the translation mechanism and the synthesis environment, with specific emphasis on the security issues arising in Nestor. Nestor has been implemented and manages heterogeneous RPC agents generated using the Cicero protocol construction language and the URPC toolkit.en_US
