Abstract

This paper deals with quality and security issues of multimedia applications with respect to video communication. Video communication is a communication service with the need for a specific attention for aspects as security and quality. Both aspects have to be considered very closely: on the one side the definition of Quality of Service (QoS) includes aspects of security, on the other side there are parts inside security which will have a direct or indirect influence to the quality parameters of QoS. The further scope and regard of security will be restricted to Availability, Integrity and Confidentiality and will be explained in more detail concerning video communication. Requirements for realtime aspects and requirements for large data amount have to be placed in the planning of security mechanisms and its realization and have to be considered in the description of the QoS parameters under the view of video communication.
