In the modern era where the cut throat competition is going on, the rapid growth of the internet and the revolutionary shift of traditional communication methods by the internet services or group communication methods becomes paramount important. The other side of the coin says that there is a growing demand for security runs parallel. It is a well known fact that mobile phone or mobile devices are the best equipment for communication whether we talk about developing or developed countries. So keeping the security and authentication problem of mobile devices in wireless communication the authors present a secure authenticated key agreement based on commitment scheme for the Electronic Health Record ( EHR) system where the security is extremely important and infringement in security issues can create various legal issues.
