Internet traffic trends and forecasts clearly show that audio-video streaming is a killer application for next generation networks. Providing multicast support within operators' managed networks is mandatory to sustain the exponential growth of demand for multimedia contents without saturating the bandwidth available in core, backhauling, and access infrastructures. This work presents an experimental setup, built on top of an open source platform called openBOXware, which enables protected delivery of multimedia contents over unprotected multicast IP networks.
