In this work, we design a destination-initiated protocol, which aims at building source-rooted shortest path tree (SPT) in a hop-by-hop manner for providing scalable multicast. The designed protocol can support group applications with dynamic membership well. Performance analysis and simulation results show that the destination-initiated characteristic can significantly reduce the computation, storage and communication overhead associated with SPT constructions.
