Short description of contents:
We develop a semantics theory for SAP, a variant of Levi and Sangiorgi’s Safe Ambients, SA. The dynamics of SA relies upon capabilities (and co-capabilities) exercised by mobile agents, called ambients, to interact with each other. These capabilities contain references, the names of ambients with which they wish to interact. In SAP we generalise the notion of capability: in order to interact with an ambient n, an ambient m must exercise a capability indicating both n and a password h to access n; the interaction between n and m takes place only if n is willing to perform a corresponding co-capability with the same password h. The name h can also be lookedupon as a port to access ambient n via port h. In SAP by managing passwords/ports, for example generating new ones and distributing themselectively, an ambient may now program who may migrate into its computation space, and when. Moreover in SAP an ambient may provide different services/resources depending on the port accessed by the incoming clients. Then, we give an lts-based operational semantics for SAP and a labelled bisimulation equivalence which is proved to coincide with reduction barbed congruence.We use our notion of bisimulation to prove a set of algebraic laws which are subsequently exploited to prove more significant examples.
