Abstract: The most appropriate communication mechanism for transfer of packets from one source to another is multicast IPv6 communication. Nowadays, multicast communication plays a major role in a large number of communication applications. In this multicast communication, the message privacy attains a highest position. The members of multicast are dynamic so they permit the host members to enter and depart the cluster without the permission of remaining group members and, it can’t provide any transfer without the interference of host, this may reduce the performance. For security enhancement in multicast communication Group Key Management (GKM) was introduced. There are three different approaches in GKM and they were mainly involved to overcome the issues of host mobility in multicast communication. The challenges that are encountered by these GKM approaches their requirements and challenges was also discussed in this paper. Finally, some questions and their explanations were provided along with it. These GKM approaches will improve the privacy of multicast communication. So, the packets can deliver to the group members without any interference.
