Communication Interference in Mobile Boxed Ambients

Bugliesi, M., Crafa, S., Merro, M. and Sassone, V. (2002) Communication Interference in Mobile Boxed Ambients At 22nd Conference on Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer Science, FST&TCS 2002.. , pp. 71-84.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Boxed Ambients (BA) replace Mobile Ambients’open capability with communication primitives acting across ambient boundaries. Expressiveness is achieved at the price of communication interferences on message reception whose resolution requires synchronisation of activities at multiple, distributed locations. We study a variant of BA aimed at controlling communication interferences as well as mobility ones. Our calculus draws inspiration from Safe Ambients (SA) (with passwords) and modifies the communication mechanism of BA. Expressiveness is maintained through a new form of co-capability that at the same time registers incoming agents with the receiver ambient and performs access control.
