Whilst TV broadcasting is probably the best-known application of satellite technology, satellite service providers are now expanding their services to include Internet data transmission. Consequently, security of satellite data is becoming an important issue. This article examines the current DVB-RCS security standard and identifies the principal gaps in the provision of secure multicast over DVB-RCS. The main contribution of this article is a proposal for adapting the current DVB-RCS two-way satellite standard to provide secure multicast services over satellites.
