Electronic negotiation (e-negotiation) is a major activity in e-Commerce applications. Agent-based e-negotiation has recently received increasing attention. However, agent-based electronic negotiation suffers from a number of security attacks. In this paper, we present a mobile agent-based e-commerce framework. We also propose a security protocol that protects the information exchanged between the mobile agents during e- negotiations. We reason the correctness of the proposed security protocol in the presence of various security threats. The reasoning shows that the protocol maintains privacy, non- repudiation, authenticity, anonymity, and strong integrity of exchanged information.
