Source authentication is the most important and difficult problem in multicast security, and no schemes can satisfy all multicast applications. So a hybrid multicast source authentication (HMSA) scheme was proposed based on two data structures: hashing tree and hashing chain. Compared with some other schemes in computation and communication overheads, HMSA is simple, efficient and secure.
