The availability of smartphones and tablet subscribers has brought improvements in wireless cellular networks through Device-to-Device (D2D) communications. However, addressing security challenges in D2D communication is still a research problem, especially, the Data Transformation Phenomenon (DTP) which affects the performance of Group Key Management (GKM) In this paper, we present a document analysis of the main factors required for efficient group key management, and proposal a scenario based approach for finding appropriate solution which uses a D2D communication in GKM to improve the DTP by presenting a light, secure and resilient environment.
