A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a spontaneous network consisting of wireless nodes which are mobile and self-configuring in nature. Devices in MANET can move freely in any direction independently and change its link frequently to other devices. MANET does not have centralized infrastructure and its characteristics makes this network vulnerable to various kinds of attacks. Data transfer is a major problem due to its nature of unreliable wireless medium. Commonly used technique for secure transmission in wireless network is cryptography. Use of cryptography key is often involved in most of cryptographic techniques. Key management is main component in security issues of MANET and various schemes have been proposed for it. In this paper, a study on various kinds of key management techniques in MANET is presented.
