Cryptography has been employed to establishing secure communication over insecure networks. Using symmetric keys to encipher and decipher data is one of common practices for achieving secrecy over networks. To employ symmetric key cryptography we require a secure and reliable key management framework for generating, distributing, and finally revoking keys. Many attacks endanger security of key management in each step and so need of secure key management frameworks now is felt more than ever. Proposed, Interpretative Key Management, framework reduces likelihood of attacks by eliminating key storage, reducing many times key distribution to just one time interpreter distribution, and increases security by means of using minutely, hourly, or daily key without need of key distribution. Also key revocation is automated process and IKM doesn’t require revocation call.
