2 3 Challenges for Broadcast Security Broadcast applications need security Packet injection or eavesdropping is easy Security solutions for point-to-point communication not secure for broadcast Broadcast challenges Scale to large audiences Dynamic membership Low overhead (computation & communication) Packet loss How to achieve reliability in broadcasts? Lost packets are not retransmitted 4 Scale & Dynamics Small groups contain up to ~100 members Medium-size groups contain 100-1000 members Large groups contain 1000-10 9 members How does scale affect security? Dynamic membership: members may join and leave at any time How do dynamics affect security?

3 5 Communication Pattern Group can be single-source broadcast One-to-many SSM: Single-source multicast, source-specific multicast Multiple-source broadcast Some-to-many All members broadcast Many-to-many Which one is most common? Examples? 6 Reliable Broadcast Transmission How to reliably and scalably disseminate data to large numbers of receivers? Challenges Ack implosion problem if receivers return Ack to sender for received packets Nack implosion problem is severe as well For large numbers of receivers, there usually is a fraction of them that do not obtain message Local repair mechanisms (create tree topology and ask upstream parent for packet) faced numerous scalability difficulties End-system multicast builds data dissemination graph so receivers forward information to each other, for example Rinera startup

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
