Group communications in wireless networks has been facilitating many emerging applications that require packet delivery
from one or more sender(s) to multiple receivers.. Due to insecure wireless channels, group communications are susceptible to various
kinds of attacks. Although a number of proposals have been reported to secure group communications using Group management key
(GMK), provisioning security in group communications in wireless networks remains a critical and challenging issue. This article
presents a survey of recent advances in security requirements and services in group communications in three types of wireless
networks, and discusses challenges in designing secure group communications in these networks: wireless infrastructure networks,
mobile ad hoc networks, and wireless sensor networks. This article presents a survey of recent advances in security requirements and

Nowadays, most of the network system is established in
the mobile environments. Every mobile ad hoc system
should be accessed with the better performance. In this
proposed system “Distributed Token Ring circulation in
mobile Ad-hoc Networks”, to measure the performance of
the local and global connectivity between the nodes. An
important application of such algorithms is to ensure total
order of message delivery in a group communication
service. If the algorithms are gives different performance
results for each group in the ad hoc network topology.
When using a token circulation algorithm, a round is said
to complete when every node has been visited at least
once. Criteria for comparing the algorithms include the
average time required to complete a round, number of
bytes sent per round, and number of nodes visited per
