Technical Summary This document provides a threat analysis and derives the security requirements when using the Transport Stream, TS, to support an Internet network-layer using the Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation (ULE) defined in RFC4326. The document also provides the motivation for link-layer security for a ULE Stream. A ULE Stream may be used to send IPv4 packets, IPv6 packets, and other Protocol Data Units (PDUs) to an arbitrarily large number of Receivers supporting unicast and/or multicast transmission. Working Group Summary This document builds on RFC 4326, and identifies a set of security-related topics that impact IP operation over a range of broadcast links supporting IP. Document Quality The IPDVB WG has reached consensus that this document is ready for publication as an informational RFC. This document does not define a protocol or new mechanism.
