The organization and interaction models show four main entities which
can act as subjects as well as objects: managers, mobile agents, agent
systems and managed resources. Each of these entities can be attacked.
The attacker tries to become a `valid identity' by faking an identity
or entity in the management system. This attack is called masquerade, e.g.,
if the attacker can act as a manager or if he can
launch an MA or AS under the name of a legitimate subject he is able
to gain illegal access to the system.
