Securing U-Healthcare Sensor Networks Using Public Key Based Scheme
Source: Kyung Hee University
Recent emergence of electronic culture uplifts healthcare facilities to a new era with the aid of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology. Due to the sensitiveness of medical data, austere privacy and security are inevitable for all parts of healthcare systems. However, the constantly evolving nature and constrained resources of sensors in WSN inflict unavailability of a lucid line of defense to ensure perfect security. In order to provide holistic security, protections must be incorporated in every component of healthcare sensor networks.
