Abstract Nowadays the developing methods for distributed computing attract much attention. One of the methods for distributed computing is the use of multi-agent systems. The organization of dis-tributed computing based on the conventional network computers can experience security threats performed by computational processes. Authors have developed the unified agent algorithm of control system of computing network nodes operation. Network PCs are used as computing nodes. The proposed multi-agent control system for the implementation of distributed computing allows in a short time to organize using of the processing power of computers in the network for solving large-tasks by creating a distributed computing. Agents who control a computer network can: configure a distributed computing system; distribute the computational load among computers operated by the agents; perform an optimization of computing load according to the computing power of computers in the network. The number of computers connected to the network can be increased by connecting computers to the new computer system, which leads to an increase in overall processing power. Adding multi-agent system in the central agent increases the security of distributed computing. This organization of the distributed computing system reduces the problem solving time and increase fault tolerance (vitality) of computing processes in a changing computing environment (dynamic change of the number of computers on the network). In the absence of security threats computing multi-agent system is able to perform the enumerated functions without a control center. In case of a threat several "central" agents which operation algorithms are com-plicated compared to other agents are added in a decentralized multi-agent system to enhance its degree of security. Under control of the developed algorithm agents will detect cases of falsification of the distributed system operation results, which may lead to wrong decisions.
