A SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE SECURITY CONCEPT OF THE GERMAN ELECTRONIC HEALTH INFORMATION INFRASTRUCTURE

Stefan Knipl, Ali Sunyaev

Abstract

Germany is about to introduce a nation-wide healthcare telematics system, intending to connect existing information systems of all stakeholders. This could result in new threats to highly sensitive medical data. In this paper we shortly describe the security concept itself and point out a few possible problems at reaching the goals of information security.
