Key management in the ad hoc network is an exigent issue concerning the security of the group communication. There are three categories for classifying group key management protocols; centralized, decentralized and distributed. By establishing key management protocol, suitable solution can be provide to services like authentication, data integrity and data confidentiality. This paper deals with an approach for designing and analyzing the region-based group key management protocols for scalable and reconfigurable group key management in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs).
