Abstract: As multicast applications are deployed for mainstream use, there is a high demand on the security functions to be provided by the underlying multicast framework. Hence, security enhancement of IP multicast is required for multicast communication. This dissertation describes a scalable secure multicast framework to address the scalability problem occurred in the multicast scenario by extending the current Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) v3. The extended IGMP will provide security functions such as authentication and authentication of the multicast senders and receivers, support encryption of the IP multicast datagram, in order to prevent unauthorised access.
