In the last dozen years mobile technology has flourished throughout the developing world faster than any other technology in history. The latest phenomenon spawned by mobile technology is mobile money. Short message service (SMS) is a very popular and easy to use communications technology for mobile phone devices. Originally, this service was not designed to transmit secured data, so the security was not an important issue during its design. Yet today, it is used to exchange sensitive information between communicating parties i.e. Mobile Money. The most important security service that most provided to secure SMS are confidentiality, integrity, authentication and non-repudiation. In this review a secured short Message service (SMS) which is a peer-to-peer hybrid cryptography is analyzed which provide the security services, it uses symmetric (AES-Rijndael) and asymmetric (NTRU) algorithm to achieve more robust functionality and the use of hashing algorithm SHA-1 is suggested to be replace with HMAC-SHA256 because of its vulnerability. The protocol is proposed to be use in mobile money short message service communication channel.
