Recently, the popularity of smart devices such as Wi-Fi and LTE has increased the use ratio of wireless dramatically. On the other hand, the use ratio of wired internet is decreasing. The IoT(Internet of Things) is not only for people but also for communication between people and things, and communication between things and things by connecting to a wireless without choosing a place. Along with the rapid spread of the IoT there is a growing concern about the threat of IoT security. In this paper, the proposed scheme is a efficiency group key agreement in IoT environment that guarantees secure communication among light-weight devices. The proposed scheme securely be able to communication with the group devices who share a group key, generated by own secret value and the public value. Such property is suitable to the environment which are required a local area and a group.
