Mobile agents are programs that can migrate from machine to machine in
a heterogeneous, partially disconnected network. As mobile agents move
across a network, they consume resources. We discuss a system for
controlling the activities of mobile agents that uses electronic cash,
a banking system, and a set of resource managers. We describe
protocols for transactions between agents. We present fixed-pricing
and dynamic-pricing policies for resources. We focus on and analyze
the sealed-bid second-price auction as a mechanism for dynamic
