We propose mechanisms for providing security services for source specific multicast(SSM) in networks including mobile hosts. First we categorize security requirements in SSM applications. Then we present some protocols for building multicast trees, distributing security keys, and sending messages securely in two categories of security requirements: authenticated SSM without rekeying and authenticated SSM with rekeying.
