Key management in multicast dynamic groups, where users can leave or joinat their ease is one of the most crucial and essential part of securecommunication. Various efficient management strategies have been proposedduring last decade that aim to decrease encryption costs and transmissionoverheads. In this report, two different types of key management schemes areproposed. First proposed scheme is based on One-way function tree (OFT).The proposed scheme fulfills the security gaps that have been pointed out inrecent years. Second proposed scheme is based on logical key hierarchy(LKH). This proposed scheme provides better performance for, ratherinflexible and expensive, LKH scheme.
