The Diffie-Hellman key algorithm was the first proposed public key algorithm by which two parties can communicate with each other without having any prior knowledge of each other over an insecure communication channel proposed by Harn.et.al. Diffie-Hellman key exchange algorithm is the most famous algorithm to exchange keys over a network but it has some false and drawbacks. So in the authors' paper they have proposed a new agreement protocol based on key confirmation as well as Diffie-Hellman algorithm. This protocol also works on the elliptic curve cryptography in asymmetric encryption.
