    Smile Multicast problem

    Hi all,

    Can we send data via a multicast socket by using SSL? Anyone can give me some reference on it.

    Please help, much thanks!

    Hi,

    I don't think that there is a ratified standard for secure multicasting,
    nearest is the RMP which is the Reliable Multicast Protocol - you could
    try looking in the Java JSSE (Secure Socket Extensions) library but I couldn't
    find anything.

    The other option you have is to encrypt the data prior to sending, however if
    a packet doesn't make it your in trouble.

    Sorry I cannot help further.
    Hope this helps
