This chapter is an overview of security requirements raised by multicast communications along with a survey of principal solutions. A detailed requirement analysis points out the characteristics of multicast in terms of security and scalability. The differences between unicast and multicast communications with respect to the design of authentication and confidentiality mechanisms are discussed. Main confidentiality proposals are analyzed in a detailed comparison survey based on the security and scalability criteria.
