The progression of technology is continuous and the technology that drives interpersonal communication is not an exception. Recent technology advancements in the areas of multicast, firewalls, encryption techniques, and bandwidth availability have made the next level of interpersonal communication possible. This thesis answers why collaborative environments are important in today's online productivity. In doing so, it gives the reader a comprehensive background in distributed collaborative environments, answers how collaborative environments are employed in the Department of Defense and industry, details the effects network security has on multicast protocols, and compares collaborative solutions with a focus on security. The thesis ends by providing a recommendation for collaborative solutions to be utilized by NPS/DoD type networks. Efficient multicast collaboration, in the framework of security is a secondary focus of this research. As such, it takes security and firewall concerns into consideration while comparing and contrasting both multicast-based and non-multicast-based collaborative solutions.
