Security is increasingly becoming a concern in applications built on
multi-party communication.  Centrally, protection of the application
content from non-authorized or malicious parties is the fundamental
goal of any security policy specification.  This draft seeks to
illuminate the design space of secure multicast communication
policy.  The security requirements of existing application policies
are intended to be addressable by these policy dimensions.  It is
from an understanding of policy design space that the mechanisms for
policy specification and enforcement can be derived.
