Multicast research has explored the security challenges faced in group communications. Multicast transport and multicast security need to work in close collaboration to realise a multicast service. However, there has been comparatively little work to combine the two technologies. In this paper the authors is presenting an example of partially integrating timed efficient stream loss-tolerant authentication (TESLA) protocol and the file delivery over unidirectional transport (FLUTE) protocol. The security concern raised by the proposed algorithm is analysed for satellite network. The proposed algorithm was implemented on a testbed with multicast tunnel between University of Surrey and University of Aberdeen and the results are presented in this paper.
