In this paper, we present an approach of integrating meta-agents in Web Services. Web Services requires an appropriate level of security to support business systems to be used by anyone, anywhere, at anytime and any platform. However, the increased use of distributed systems with message passing produces a growing set of security problems. This especially concerns threats and attacks on Web Services consisting of transactions with valuable resources. To prevent possible attacks on Web Services, we propose using meta-agents over software agents in a multi-agent system. The multi-agent system consists of a network of software agents that secure the message passing at the transport and application levels. To avoid attacks on these agents, we use meta-agents to monitor the software agents’ actions and then to direct the software agents’ work. These meta-agents are also used to handle unexpected events in the actions of the software agents.
