Multimedia European Research Conferencing Integration

Workpackage 10


Many uses of conferencing require confidentiality, and assurance that only specific people are participating in the conferences. This requires authentication and encryption of the multimedia streams. The provision of encrypted streams is a function of WP3 (MM Conference Components and cross-platform support); the provision of the security technology itself is an activity of the ICE-TEL project.

This work-package is concerned with the design of the architecture for secure conferencing, the key management architecture, the participant authentication, and the provision of encryption gateways where these are required.
