ANNA: A UNIFIED FRAMEWORK FOR DATA SECURITY IN HEALTHCARE INTERNET OF THINGS

Abstract
Today, the cyber-physical interactions are made possible with the development of internet and smart technologies. Smart objects such as sensors, RFID tags and actuators are the building blocks of such pervasive network, called as Internet of Things (IoT). IoT has a good number of real time applications in all domains including medical industry. It has great impact on modern healthcare with promising economic, technological and social benefits. Researchers across the globe already have started to explore a variety of technological solutions to enhance healthcare system by incorporating the potential of the IoT. This paper presents a unified framework ANNA, for integrating IoT in healthcare system. It presents three lightweight algorithms to enhance data security in the smart healthcare environment. In addition, this paper provides a detailed working scenario which would be helpful in implementing smart healthcare units in rural India. The working scenario of the ANNA smart healthcare system and the workflow of the framework are also elaborated in this paper. The proposed framework is proved against possible attacks in the healthcare environment. The salient features of the framework are outlined and this research creates a hope that the smart healthcare units based on ANNA framework will offer on time medical care to the needy and the downtrodden
