This document analyzes security threats to Simplified Multicast Forwarding (SMF) [RFC6621]. SMF aims at providing basic Internet Protocol (IP) multicast forwarding in a way that is suitable for wireless mesh and Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET). SMF consists of two major functional components: duplicate packet detection (DPD) and relay set selection (RSS).
