The vast growth in electronic trading and monetary transactions results to increase the  importance of E-commerce applications rapidly. In order to accomplish the fully functioning, reliable, scalable, secure, efficient and user-friendly E-commerce applications, sufficient system analysis and design processes are important. Shopping over the internet requires offering secure payment method.

Providing security for each individual online consumer at the same time (particularly for large websites) is a time-consuming effort that can result in a variety of issues, including response delays, customer orders being lost, and system freeze or crash, all of which impair system performance.

This work seeks to present a new multi-agent system prototype structure that solves the challenge of security while avoiding issues that might degrade system performance. By creating integrated system taking into account the three parties the e-commerce, the e-bank and the customer, the main concentration is to create an archeticture that helps in decreasing the website traffic and supportng the  security with effective performance. To simulate the real systems a recommendation system is created based on the customer behaviors to increase system performance in helping the customers to find their favorite products and solve problems like cold start, sparsity of user‐item matrix, scalability, and changes in user interest.

This is done by creating a commercial environment (e-commerce and e-bank websites) and a software agent that is installed on the client's device to handle the purchase and ciphering procedures without the need for the consumer to intervene. The security process involve preprocessing phase followed by a modified lightweight AES employing chaotic tent map to generate encryption key.
