MAD project implemented two protocols designed for reliable content delivery. File Delivery over Unidirectional Transport (FLUTE) is a protocol for the unidirectional delivery of files over the Internet, which is particularly suited to multicast networks. FLUTE builds on Asyncronous Layered Coding (ALC), the base protocol designed for massively scalable multicast distribution. Asynchronous Layered Coding combines the Layered Coding Transport (LCT) building block, a multiple rate congestion control building block and the Forward Error Correction (FEC) building block to provide congestion controlled reliable asynchronous delivery of content to an unlimited number of concurrent receivers from a single sender. MAD-ALCLIB library is an implementation of the ALC/LCT protocol, along with the RLC congestion control protocol and Compact No-Code, Simple XOR and Reed-Solomon FEC schemes. Session Description Protocol (SDP) can be used to describe FLUTE sessions. MAD-SDPLIB library is an implementation of "SDP Descriptors for FLUTE" Internet-Draft. MAD-FLUTELIB is an implementation of the FLUTE protocol, and it builds on MAD-ALCLIB and MAD-SDPLIB libraries. MAD-FLUTE is a multicast file transfer tool build on the above mentioned libraries.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
Problem reports, updates or suggestions for this package should be reported with send-pr.
