Abstract

Smart homes and healthcare have increasingly grown more popular in the recent years. Due to the amount of data, it records the need for a more secure method is needed to ensure security and privacy. Consequently, these methods can also ensure security and privacy in Smart health. The intended outcome of this review paper is to analyze the problems which people might be facing related to security issues in their smart homes and initiate a discussion on how healthcare devices which come in a package by future homes are vulnerable to cyber attacks which will result into data breaches. By reviewing previous literature, this paper proposes blockchain as a method to improve security and privacy in smart homes and smart healthcare. Using this platform, we debated about the uprising blockchain technology which may contribute to these elements and how its components can assist healthcare to grow with complete security in mind. This research discusses how blockchain based solutions may give rise to future homes and healthcare based on an ideal framework.
