Reliable dynamic peer group communication is an increasingly active research area with the growing popularity of collaborative applications. We and other researchers have been exploring peer-to-peer application level multicast architecture to support dynamic peer group communication. In previous work, we have designed and implemented ALMAP- an application level multicast approach to peer-to-peer dynamic group. Theoretical analysis and preliminary performance testing results are promising. To investigate the application of ALMAP, the work presented in this paper interfaces ALMAP as a communication toolkit and integrates TGDH a tree based group security agreement application. Our results indicate that ALMAP is a simple, effective, and efficient dynamic peer group communication toolkit with some attractive features.
