Quality of Service Regulation in Secure Body Area Networks: System Modeling and Adaptation Methods
Body Area Network (BAN) has recently emerged as a promising platform for future research and development. The applications are myriad and encompass a wide range of scenarios, including those in not only medicine but also in everyday activities. However, while the applicability and necessity of BAN have been firmly assured, the underlying technological platforms to practically realize these networks are still in the developmental stages, with many outstanding key problems to be addressed. Due to their envisioned domains of applicability, an important problem in BANs is security and user privacy.
