Re: Multicast traffic and IPSec

Deploying encryption of IP Multicast traffic with IPsec requires tunneling of IP broadcast and IP Multicast packets. Although this is a perfectly fine and a preferable method, in some cases-remote-access security solutions provide a tunnel between a remote system and a corporate gateway-it is not very efficient. A critical challenge for any solution in environments such as distribution of enterprise audio, video, and other media is efficiency.Refer the following URL for Multicast on IPSec
