The following document describes research and development of a cross layer design of two complementary topics: Reliable Multicast over satellite cross-layer design architecture The first topic investigates the capabilities of existing reliable multicast protocols and identifies the drawbacks using a variety of numerical and emulation models. Within this research topic a cross layer approach to designing multicast protocol is investigated and then compared with the existing techniques to show higher performance. Cross-layer security Framework The second topic investigates how network layer security can be provided in a cross layer architecture. This has led to the development of a new framework called Cross Layer IPsec (CL-IPsec). The performance of the new framework is compared with IPsec using emulation and numerical methods in this research topic and evidence of higher performance using CL-IPsec is shown. The two main parts are followed by conclusion and appendix sections. The important points from each chapter are summarised in the conclusion section; which is followed by a future work section that identifies further work that needs to be done in this field. The appendix contains list of publications that were generated as part of this research and schematic diagrams of CL-IPsec functions.
