Group key agreement is a fundamental building block for secure peer group communication sys-
tems. Several group key management techniques were proposed in the last decade, all assuming

message delivery as well as group membership information. Despite analysis, implementation and
deployment of some of these techniques, the actual costs associated with group key management
have been poorly understood so far. This resulted in an undesirable tendency: on the one hand,
adopting sub-optimal security for reliable group communication, while, on the other hand, con-
structing excessively costly group key management protocols.
This paper presents a thorough performance evaluation of five notable distributed key manage-
