Secure and Scalable Cloud-based Architecture for e-Health Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract : There has been a host of research works on wireless sensor networks for medical applications. However, the major shortcoming of these efforts is a lack of consideration of data management. Indeed, the huge amount of high sensitive data generated and collected by medical sensor networks introduces several challenges that existing architectures cannot solve. These challenges include scalability, availability and security. In this paper, we propose an innovative architecture for collecting and accessing large amount of data generated by medical sensor networks. Our architecture resolves all the aforementioned challenges and makes easy information sharing between healthcare professionals. Furthermore, we propose an effective and flexible security mechanism that guarantees confidentiality, integrity as well as fine grained access control to outsourced medical data. This mechanism combines several cryptographic schemes to achieve high flexibility and performance.
