In this paper, the authors present a survey on Key Management in Public Key Cryptosystem. This discussion is centered on overview of distribution of public and secret keys in public key cryptography. Key management is the management of cryptographic keys in a cryptosystem. This includes dealing with the generation, exchange, storage, use, and replacement of keys. It includes cryptographic protocol design, key servers, user procedures, and other relevant protocols. Key management concerns keys at the user level, either between users or systems.
