some of you might be interested in an interesting paper I was passed by
one of my colleagues here who just returned from USENIX Security in DC.
The title of the paper is:
"Antigone: A Flexible Framework for Secure Group Communication"
Patrick McDaniel & Atul Prakash Peter Honeyman
EECS Dept. UMich Ann Arbor Center for Info Tech Integration
UMich Ann Arbor
If you are interested I'll send the article out in .pdf (If you can't
get a hold of it)
Just wanted to point out a brief comment in their summary:
"A reality of the existing Internet fabric is its inconsistent
support for multicast services. In deploying multicast-based
solutions, we have found that though multicast connectivity in
one direction is often possible, achieving bi-directional
multicast is more difficult"
