Abstract

Security has become one of the most significant problems for spreading new information technology. Digital data can easily be copied and multiplied without information loss. This requires security solutions for such fields as distributed production processes and electronic commerce, since the producers seek to provide access control mechanisms to prevent misuse and theft of the material. The workshop analyzes specific security problems of multimedia systems and multimedia material in the digital environment. Based on our discussion in the workshop at the ACM MM'98 in Bristol, at the ACM MM'99 in Orlando and at ACM MM'00 in Los Angeles, we want to continue with the state of the art evaluation and discuss future needs for the design of MM Security and legal aspects. We understand that the interest and importance of security within the field of multimedia was reflected in the great number of participants from all over the world in last three workshops.
