Although a large number of pairing-based key-agreement cryptosystems have been proposed, there are still a lot of drawbacks. One of the most important disadvantages of mentioned cryptographic functions is that there is not a comprehensive system to satisfy both security and efficiency requirements. Moreover, there is not an integrated document to categorize and present possible challenges. Therefore, the authors paid particular attention to this issue, unlike other surveys in the area of key-agreement cryptosystems. In this paper, they presented a new method to address possible challenges. Actually, they claim that unlike existing documents, this paper determines possible challenges and open problems in the area of lightweight pairing-based key-agreement cryptosystems.
