Abstract : This paper is part of the document series produced under the HQADF sponsored task D6: A Security Architecture for Large, Distributed Multimedia Systems'. The first of two main aims of this paper is to identify an internationally standardised real-time multi-media multi-point communications platform, on which mission-centric group-oriented applications may be developed using commercially available products. The second aim is to investigate the protocol security requirements to support the identified platform. This paper specifically focuses on the trustworthiness of a platform-enabling mechanism known as GCC (Generic Conference Control) Provider. A potential outcome could imply the possibility of 'BLACK Conferencing', where only encrypted conference information is processed by conference bridges or multi-point control units.
