The Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) has emerged as a new technology for e-healthcare that allows real time monitoring of patients using small wearable and/or implantable sensors. The latest collect vital information of the patient and communicate them to a central unit using short-range wireless communication techniques. The security and privacy protection of the data collected from a WBAN is major preoccupation with challenges coming from stringent resource constraints of WBAN devices and the high demand for both security/privacy and practicality/usability. In this paper, the authors first categorize the type of eavesdroppers that threatening the privacy in WBAN, and then they propose a new scheme based biometric to protect location privacy in WBAN.
