Regarding security particularly in the field of multimedia, the requirements on security increase. If and in which way security mechanisms can be applied to multimedia data and their applications needs to be analyzed for each purpose separately. This is mainly due to the structure and complexity of multimedia. Based on the main issues of IT-security, this paper introduces the most important security requirements, which must be fulfilled by today's multimedia systems. Furthermore, it describes the security measures used to satisfy these requirements. These measures are based on modern cryptographic mechanisms and digital water-marking techniques as well as on security infrastructures.
