A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the IP Security Protocol Working Group of the IETF. Title : A Framework for Group Key Management for Multicast Security Author(s) : T. Hardjono, B. Cain, N. Doraswamy Filename : draft-ietf-ipsec-gkmframework-03.txt Pages : 23 Date : 15-Aug-00 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.

Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ipsec-gkmframework-03.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.
