A group key agreement protocol is designed to efficiently implement secure mul-ticast channels for a group of parties communicating over an untrusted, open network by allowing them to agree on a common secret key. In the past decade many problems related to group key agreement have been tackled and solved (diminished if not solved), and recently some(More)
