Both of them have no authentication.

What is the difference between both of them?

ALLJOYN_SRP_KEYX does provide authentication via the pre-shared password between the two authenticating applications.

ANONYMOUS and ALLJOYN_ECDHE_NULL do not provide any authentication. ANONYMOUS is used between two routing nodes. For two applications authenticating with each other using null authentication, ALLJOYN_ECDHE_NULL is used.
