Secured Electronic Health Record Management Protocol
MetadataShow full item record
Since digitization is now a common practice for storing and retrieving data, Electronic Health Record (EHR) management is becoming very popular. EHR management will bring many benefits including easy to store, cost effective, shareable with health professionals to a remote location, etc. However, EHR stores very sensitive data and thus, a number of security properties including privacy, secrecy, integrity, authenticity of data and availability must be ensured during data transmission, storing and sharing with health professionals. In this paper, we have studied symmetric key based technique in designing EHR management protocol. In light of the existing efforts, we have developed a simple protocol for secured EHR management and validated that protocol using AVISPA, an industry-strength security protocol validation tool. AVISPA has reported our protocol free from known attacks and confirmed the desired security properties as well.
