Security and Authentication Architecture Using MPEG-21 for Wireless Patient Monitoring Systems

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Privacy and security are two major concerns in the ubiquitous deployment of wireless patient monitoring systems, where wireless sensor networks become an integral part of the monitoring process. To address and handle threats which arise from the use of wireless sensors, the authors propose a framework using MPEG-21. MPEG-21 is an architecture that can handle end-to-end management of multimedia content in diverse networks. They propose and evaluate a framework that is designed to protect patient monitoring systems using resource-constrained wireless sensor networks.
