On Performance of Group Key Distribution Techniques When Applied to IPTV Services

IPTV services consist of multiple video channels grouped in bundles, such as sports, movies or generic bundles; users typically subscribe multiple bundles, including the generic bundle. Secure IP multicast can be used to implement IPTV services, but it still has problems to be addressed. Current solutions require high computational power in video channel zapping situations, lack support for groups sourced at the users, and presents a weak support for admission control in IP multicast for both sources and receivers in dynamically configured environments.
