The mobile VCE's digital marketplace (DMP) is a system, which allows very short term trading of radio resources. It uses autonomous agents to request and negotiate the provision of communications services in a dynamic and competitive manner.

This paper examines the cryptographic protocol that plays an essential influencing role in creating a secure service negotiation platform.
