	Title		: A Framework for Group Key Management for Multicast

This document provides a framework for group key management for 
multicast security, motivated by three main considerations, namely 
the multicast application, scalability and trust-relationships among 
entities.  It introduces two planes corresponding to the network 
entities and functions important to multicasting and to security. The 
key management plane consists of two hierarchy-levels in the form of 
a single 'trunk region' (inter-region) and one or more 'leaf regions' 
(intra-region). The advantages of the framework among others 
are that it is scalable, it has reduced complexity and allows the 
independence in regions of group key management.

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.
