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.
