Community-based collaboration support systems are useful for exchanging information on topics that community members are interested in. Most of them developed so far are based on server-client architecture and provide their services on Web servers. They require special administrative facilities, and ask users to upload their data on the systems. Furthermore, security mechanisms are not often provided for the communities. Considering these problems, we have been developing an Agent-Community-Network-based collaboration support system: in particular, a business-matching support system. Our system requires neither any special administrative facilities nor the need to upload user data to a special server. Furthermore, it supports secure peer-to-peer communication between users. It is implemented with a multi-agent Kodama framework.
