A Security Architecture for e-Health Services
Source: University of Canberra
This paper presents an alternative way to secure communications in e-health. During the communication processes, users exchange different types of information with different levels of sensitivities. For example, communications between a doctor and a patient contain data of higher levels of sensitivities than communications between a social worker and a nurse. The different levels of the sensitivities of the information are secured by using different types of security processes. In this paper, these different communication types and different levels of data sensitivities in e-health are explained, the requirements for each type for communications are described and the use of the cryptography to secure the communication is discussed.
