PIM-SSM

Description

Protocol Independent Multicast Source Specific Multicast (PIM-SSM)

Complete Definition

Protocol Independent Multicast Source Specific Multicast (PIM-SSM) builds trees that are rooted in just one source, offering a more secure and scalable model for a limited amount of applications (mostly broadcasting of content). In SSM, an IP datagram is transmitted by a source S to an SSM destination address G, and receivers can receive this datagram by subscribing to channel (S,G). See informational RFC 3569 .
