Cryptography is an imperative tool for protecting and securing data. Security provides safety and reliability. Genetic Algorithm (GA) is typically used to obtain solution for optimization and search problems. This paper presents application of GA in the field of cryptography. Key Selection in public key cryptography is a selection process in which keys can be categorized on the basis of their fitness, making GA a good candidate for key generation. Primary goals of their algorithm were to provide fast and improved performance results having practical and feasible implementation.
