A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. Title : An Architecture for Secure Internet Multicast Author(s) : R. Canetti, P. Cheng, D. Pendarakis, J. Rao, P. Rohatgi, D. Saha Filename : draft-irtf-smug-sec-mcast-arch-00.txt Pages : 18 Date : 25-Feb-99 This document proposes an architecture for secure IP multicast. It identifies the basic components and their functionalities, and specifies how these components interact with each other and with the surrounding systems. The main design principles followed in developing this architecture are simplicity, flexibility, ease of incorporation within existing systems. In particular, the design attempts to mimic the IPSec architecture, and to re-use existing IPSec mechanisms wherever possible. The proposed architecture is able to accommodate many of the existing proposals for multicast key management. In this draft, we concentrate on the architectural building blocks required to enable a group member (either a receiver or a sender of data) to use secure IP multicast. Design of the group controller(s) is left to future documents.

Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-irtf-smug-sec-mcast-arch-00.txt". NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE" command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on how to manipulate these messages. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
