Ubiquitous healthcare refers to medical service where patients can receive diagnosis, treatment and aftercare service via ubiquitous information technology. In this service, doctors and nurses can remotely monitor the physiological status of patients equipped with wireless wearable vital sign sensors. Compared with other existing information networks, it is especially important to protect the privacy, authenticity, and integrity of medical data in ubiquitous healthcare systems with low-cost energy-efficient mechanisms, because sensitive data directly related to patients’ health and hence their lives are transmitted via a public network. In this paper, we describe the security aspects of a ubiquitous healthcare system and its vulnerabilities, and propose a security system architecture which provides user authentication and several modules for secure data processing scheme using mobile phones. We also consider the situated environment and parameters for classifying patients’ data and rekeying for security enhancement. Our proposed security system architecture can be adopted for implementing the secure and reliable ubiquitous healthcare system which is one of major applications in M2M communication services.
