Abstract: We need a secure environment in order to communicate without any information leakage. From large devices having UPS to small devices having a battery, the parameter about security changes over time. We need to work in three basics of security: (1) Mutual authentication between devices, (2) Strong encryption methodology for transmission, and (3) Secure storage environment with anytime availability. The IoT enabled devices demands a lightweight secure environment. In this paper, we are concerning only about the second point, i.e. Strong encryption methodology for transmission. We will study some of the methods related to lightweight cryptography; will talk about different issues in the field of secure transmission; and will try to find out some research gap with a possible countermeasure.
