A number of application-layer protocols make use of IP broadcasts or
multicast messages for functions such as local service discovery or
name resolution. Some of these functions can only be implemented
efficiently using such mechanisms. When using broadcasts or
multicast messages, a passive observer in the same broadcast/
multicast domain can trivially record these messages and analyze
their content. Therefore, designers of protocols that make use of
broadcast/multicast messages need to take special care when designing
