Cryptography is a technique used today for hiding any confidential information from the attack of an intruder. The study of hybrid cryptography going to present is based on the study of hybridization. Study has been performed from 1993 to 2013. All the concepts related to hybrid cryptography have been analyzed and reached at the conclusion that the use of RSA is quite expanding. Near about 200 papers have been searched related to the problem and 55 have been considered in this review based on filtering. Tabular survey has been provided for ease of use. Major scope of work has been done using RSA. Diffie-Hellman is a today’s choice for algorithm implementation in any network. Another point of view is that very less use of DES is there due to some of its limitations such as less Avalanche effect. RSA, AES, SHA-1, MD5 are some of the most widely used algorithms for hybrid cryptography. The main aim of this review paper is to provide more and more information to the naïve researchers. Other objectives of this review paper are to emphasize on better performance, maximum speed of an algorithm, checking effectiveness, its efficiency and comparison with other related works.

With the results of increased efficiency, speed and throughput of various algorithms by the combination of various algorithms and techniques, hybrid cryptography has a great scope in the near future. Hybrid cryptography has been creating various opportunities for the naïve researchers and allows them to work upon various challenging limitations of algorithms in their original forms. Hybrid cryptography is easy to work upon and a great number of chances for improvement are there. A number of different useful techniques and algorithms have been prescribed in this paper that can be used for providing security in the insecure media. This paper has been providing the study of past 20 years in the search for hybrid cryptographic algorithms that may help researchers to orientate their study areas and to choose various cryptographic algorithms for their studies. The study indicates the maximum use of RSA in the hybridization of various algorithms because of its Integer Factorization Problem. Diffie-Hellman being very secure is the prior choice for eliminating various limitations of cryptographic algorithms. AES and DES have limited scope of use because of the problem of key management. No doubt, the number of cryptographic algorithms presented here is neither complete nor exhaustive but a sample of papers that demonstrates the advantages and limitations of used cryptographic algorithms.
