This volume contains papers presented at the fourth working conference on Communications and Multimedia Security (CMS'99), held in Leuven, Belgium from September 20-21, 1999. The Conference, arrangedjointly by Technical Committees 11 and 6 of the International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP), was organized by the Department of Electrical Engineering of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The name "Communications and Multimedia Security" was used for the first time in 1995, when Reinhard Posch organized the first in this series of conferences in Graz, Austria, following up on the previously national (Austrian) IT Sicherheit conferences held in Klagenfurt (1993) and Vienna (1994). In 1996, CMS took place in Essen, Germany; in 1997 the conference moved to Athens, Greece. The Conference aims to provide an international forum for presentations and discussions on protocols and techniques for providing secure information networks. The contributions in this volume review the state-of the-art in communications and multimedia security, and discuss practical of topics experiences and new developments. They cover a wide spectrum inc1uding network security, web security, protocols for entity authentication and key agreement, protocols for mobile environments, applied cryptology, watermarking, smart cards, and legal aspects of digital signatures.

Secure Broadcast Communication in Wired and Wireless Networks presents a set of fundamental protocols for building secure information distribution systems. Applications include wireless broadcast, IP multicast, sensor networks and webs, ad hoc networks, and satellite broadcast. This book presents and compares new techniques for basic operations including: *key distribution for access control, *source authentication of transmissions, and *non-repudiation of streams. This book discusses how to realize these operations both with high performance processors and resource constrained processors. It shows how to protect against adversaries who inject packets or eavesdrop. The focus is on functional descriptions rather than theoretical discussions. Protocols are presented as basic building blocks that can be combined with each other and traditional security protocols. The book illustrates these protocols in practice by presenting a real implementation that provides security for an ad hoc sensor network. This book can serve as a textbook or supplementary reading in graduate level courses on security or networking, or can be used for self study.

The papers collected here address problems connected with the networking of information systems. This is the mainstream of current development activities by computer professionals working in practical data processing. It is also a hot topic in the development laboratories of manufacturers and software houses, as well as in universities and research institutes. There are two areas where the INDC-92 conference program is believed to be especially strong: open distributed systems and high-speed networking. Corporate information technology architectures are covered in several papers and some excellent contributions are related to protocol engineering. There is a balance between submitted papers, deep and specific, and invited reports covering various information networking and data communication application areas.
