Security and privacy issues are rarely taken into account in automated systems for monitoring elderly people
in their home, exposing inhabitants to a number of threats they are usually not aware of. As a case study
to expose the major vulnerabilities these systems are exposed to, this paper reviews a generic example of
automated healthcare monitoring system. The security and privacy issues identified in this case study can be
easily generalised and regarded as alarm bells for all the pervasive healthcare professionals.
