I don't know how many of you are at sites on the MBONE, or multicast
backbone. There are already a few pieces of code out there for
experimentation with transmission of audio and video information, in a
variety of forms/encoding, and probably the most widely used tool,
"vat - the Visual Audio Tool", already has provisions for carrying
on encrypted audio teleconferences via IP. In fact, it's as simple
as typing a key into a field, and the tool will DES en/decrypt the
That's a good start! Now all we need something which is a bit more
general in its selection of the asymmetric encryption algorithm, and
something which does public key for authentication and protection of the
assymetric session key.
