With the increase in popularity of computer networks, there has been
a shift proposed in distributed system programming from the remote
procedure call (RPC) to the remote programming (RP) paradigm, to
decrease network traffic and improve performance. To accomplish
this, several experimental systems use agents (i. e., mobile pro-
cesses) to implement the RP paradigm. The use of agents has sev-
eral advantages and a few disadvantages, including added security
issues. In this paper, we survey several experimental agent systems
