    Abstract/Description

    IP multicast is an efficient method for distributing
    multimedia content to a large number of receivers while
    saving the network bandwidth and reducing processing
    overhead on the source side. However, current IP multicast
    deployment figure is still far away behind the expectations of
    both internet service and content providers due to several
    deployment complexities. In particular, multicast routers
    cannot trigger automatically a unidirectional or a bidirectional
    multicast routing protocol unless they are manually configured
    to use a specific routing protocol for a predetermined pool of
    IP multicast addresses. To limit flooding multicast content,
    each multicast group is identified by a specific scope. With
    such scope, the access control rights of senders and receivers
    access are not properly defined. To ease multicast router
    dynamic auto-configuration and access control check, we
    propose a new integrated multicast addressing and access
    control method'. In our new method, we define a new
    expanded scope filed for IPv6, which enables a plurality of
    hierarchical distribution scopes to be embedded
    simultaneously within the multicast address. In addition, in the
    new scope format, the access rights are encoded for each
    distribution scope with respect to sending and receiving
    permissions.
