In order to expedite detection of unfaithful and malicious agents, an agent recognition mechanism is proposed for multi agent communication, which is based on a laurel model and a cryptographic protocol. A laurel system for multi agent communication can be let down by a set of malicious agents. Such a group can maliciously raise the laurel of one or more agents of the group. There is no known method to protect a laurel system against swindler agent groups. So there is a need for false proof laurel management mechanism to avoid malicious agents providing false state of laurel. The modern systems that entertain multi-agent communication are more vulnerable to agents who behaves maliciously or simply do not cooperate. The lack of core level trusted third party in multi agent communication strategy postures distinctive issues for laurel management. These issues feature agent recognition strategy, dependable laurel maintenance. The disadvantage of the existing system is the laurel of the agent that responds to a request is considered but the credibility of the agent that attempts to update the laurel of the other agent is ignored. This proposal aims to devise a model to encapsulate the laurel of both the agent that respond and the agent that request. The proposed protocol reduces the number of malicious transactions. It also manages the issue of highly inconsistent accessibility pattern of the agents in multi agent communication based systems.
