Security And Privacy Issues in Healthcare Monitoring Systems: A Case Study

Daniel Tolboe Handler, Lotte Hauge, Angelo Spognardi, Nicola Dragoni

Abstract

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.
