Abstract

Multicast services and wireless interconnection networks are among the emerging technologies of the last decade. A significant amount of research has been separately performed in the areas of secure multicast and wireless interconnection networks. In this paper we investigate the issues of designing secure multicast services in wireless mobile environments for dynamic groups and propose protocols for key management for a variety of scenarios. Our solution decouples mobility management from group dynamics management, by taking into account the level of trust in the support stations. In particular, we show that protocol efficiency on the mobile host side can be traded-off with the level of trust in the support stations.
