Secure Mobile Cloud Architecture for Healthcare Application

Nacha Chondamrongkul and Pattra Chondamrongkul
Abstract—Demand of healthcare service has been increasing worldwide. With advance development of pervasive technology, wearable device with multiple sensors can be effectively used as instruments to remotely supervise patient condition at any place and any time. However, this requires dynamically scale storage resources to handle tremendous amount of data that generated from various sensors. So the public cloud suits this requirement very well, as it provides high scalable data storage service with effective cost. But data confidentiality and privacy are still challenging issues, because cloud infrastructure is maintained by the third party, so data is security compromised and generally prone to potential treats. We therefore propose architecture with security schemes that aim to overcome this challenge. The architecture supports mobile application that continuously monitors patient health condition in the secure way. The security scheme is based on public key infrastructure to protect confidentiality, privacy and authenticity of personal data. Our proposed architecture has been implemented and initially tested by group of sampling patients at a local hospital in Thailand.

Index Terms—Healthcare, cloud computing, mobile computing, public key infrastructure, security.
