In this paper the authors provide discussion of security issues for Power Line Communications (PLC) networks and they put forth several security requirements needed for that network. Security is a major issue for the deployment of local area networks in companies, where the development of IP telephony applications is sustained. In such a background, it is essential to have reliable security mechanisms to avoid unauthorized listening to communications. This power line communications represents an exceptionally promising alternative for high-speed internet access and data networking.
