To have secure multicast group communication, group key management plays an essential role to guarantee data security. Because communication bandwidth, storage memory, and computational power are limited resources, most group key management schemes for scalable secure multicast communications have focused on reducing the number of update messages, number of stored keys, and computational load. Here, also we propose efficient scheme in such a way that solves these problems.
