Video streaming technologies are becoming immensely important with the growth of the multimedia technology. With streaming, the end user can start watching the file almost as soon as it begins downloading. Security becomes a key problem to be handled when users valuable multimedia assets are floating over the network. This paper presents the key management and encryption mechanisms on the Video (motion picture + sound) streams on untrusted client-server network. As network data security is a burning issue and dominates the communication systems today, the authors present a novel security scheme, named as SVS (Secure Video Streaming) to securely transfer the valuable multimedia video streams on the untrusted network using the authorization, key management, encryption, packetization and authentication schemes.
