Abstract: Various network applications require sending data onto one or many members, maintaining security in the large groups is one of the major obstacles for controlling access. Unfortunately, IP multicast is not providing any security over the group communication. Group key management is a fundamental mechanism for secured multicast. This paper presents relevant group key management protocols. Then, we compared them against some pertinent performance criteria. Finally, we discuss the new research directions in group key management.
