In many of today's computer application needs, faster operation is essential to the efficient implementation of information security algorithm. RC4 has been used as the data encryption algorithm for many applications and protocols including the Wi-Fi, Skype, and Bit Torrent to name a few. Several efficient approaches to the implementation of RC4 have been proposed and we review some of those. More recently some parallel approaches to faster implementation of RC4 have been presented and we
