Security of information flowing through insecure network is becoming complicated with advent of internet and its usage. Encrypting information is one way of securing it from unauthorized access. This paper analyze techniques of exchanging key through which encryption is performed. We review the techniques on various parameters and find which technique is best suitable for use in mobile computers with limited processing power and battery capacity while efficiently working on wireless networks.
