A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) sometimes called actuator networks are the group of sensor nodes which communicate with each other or with the base station. This wireless sensor networks are used to measure the different conditions. Due to the vast use of WSN in various applications like military, air traffic, e-learning it become necessary to enhance the security of sensor networks. There is a lots of security problems which are faced by sensor networks so it become necessary to improve the traditional key management techniques. The objective of this paper is to study the various key management techniques to enhance the security of leach protocol.
