Secure emergency medical architecture on the cloud using wireless sensor networks for emergency detection

Abstract : Recently introduced, Attribute-based encryption (ABE) is a promising cryptographic method proposed by Sahai and Waters. This technique provides means for designing scalable and fine-grained access control. In ABE, data are encrypted with an access structure which is the logical expression of the access policy (eg: the data can be accessed by physician in cardiology division or by nurses). The cyphertext (encrypted data) can be decrypted by any user if his secret key has attributes that satisfy the access policy. The power of ABE is that we do not need to rely on the storage server for avoiding unauthorized data access since the access policy is embedded in the cyphertext itself. This makes ABE good solution to provide a fine-grained access control for medical applications, where data is outsourced on untrusted servers like the case of the Cloud. However, for emergency management, integrating ABE creates particular challenges for providing temporary access victims medical data when this is needed. In this paper we present our architecture for secure emergency management in healthcare area. We address the challenge of ABE integrating for providing temporary access victims medical data in emergency situation. In addition, we use wireless sensor network (WSN) technology to provide early emergency detection.
