Multicast communication is simultaneous transmission of data to multiple receivers and saves considerably sender resouces and network bandwidth. It has high risk to attack using group address and inherent complexity of routing packets to a large group of receivers. It is therefore critical to provide source authentication, allowing a receiver to ensure that received data is authentic. In this paper, we propose the multiple chain authentication scheme for secure and efficient multicast stream. To evaluate the performance of our scheme, we compare our technique with two other perviously proposed schemes using simulation results. Our scheme provides non-repudiation of origin, low overhead by amortizing the signature operation over multiple packets, and high packet loss resistance.
