         A preliminary prototype has been designed and implemented in this work to support network security that used to detect a misuse in the network environment, the events have been taken from KDD, so three types of attacks have been taken on TCP, UDP, and ICMP connections. The prototype design is based on the Agent Technology and using the JADE platform, which is a platform used as a requirement for Multi_agent systems. The used Multi_agent system is of a closed type (Closed Multi_agent System); this is due to the fact that the used agents in this system (mobile and static agents) have been defined and declared in advance, JADE Add-Ons Services have been used to provide additional features that could be used to support the proposed security prototype, like using Inter_Platform Migration Service (IPMS), and JADE Security Add-On (JADE_S).
    Through the work a test has been achieved for the ability of the prototype scalability with low network latency.
