A symmetric group key agreement protocol enables the group members to derive a shared session key for secure communication among them, while an asymmetric one facilitates security to any communication from outside, without adding outsiders into the group. In this paper, we propose a twofold group key agreement protocol which addresses the need of a shared symmetric key among insider members in a group and an asymmetric key pair for any unrestricted sender. In particular, we look forward for a solution to provide secure communication among multiple processing clusters (PCs) actively running on an integrated circuit (IC). The proposed protocol offers a lightweight symmetric encryption for intra zone communication and a public key encryption for inter zone communication taking most advanced security issues into account.
