Abstract

Mobile devices have penetrated the healthcare sector due to their increased functionality, low cost, high reliability and easy-to-use nature. However, in healthcare applications the privacy and security of the transmitted information must be preserved. Therefore applications require a concrete security framework based on long-term security keys, such as the security key that can be found in a mobile Subscriber Identity Module (SIM). The wireless nature of communication links in mobile networks presents a major challenge in this respect. This paper presents a novel protocol that will send the information securely while including the access privileges to the authorized recipient.
