Abstract

In this study we propose a security architecture for mobile Health (mHealth) communications. mHealth is a term used for medical-related services or communication, delivered using mobile devices such as mobile phones, tablet computers and PDAs. Communication in the health-related field often involve sensitive information (e.g., an email about a patient's illness is sent between doctors), which is transmitted over the Internet. However, although the Internet greatly facilitates the communication, it is undeniable that the threats to the Internet are becoming more prevalent. A multi-agent security architecture is presented in this study to provide a secure environment for mHealth communication. Agents are skilled in order to handle the communication processes at both sender's and recipient's side. This includes the security processes, which make use of cryptography protocols to secure data at both sides.
