A Secure and Efficient TMIS-Based Authentication Scheme Improved Against Zhang et al.’s Scheme
- 20 Downloads
The telecare medicine information systems (TMIS) architecture is exceedingly paving the ways for convenient dispensing of patient-oriented healthcare services at remote distances. At the same time, with the growing convenience in healthcare delivery, the privacy for service seekers cannot be overlooked. Different authentication protocols have been presented in the last few years; nonetheless the recent attacks or identified limitations on those protocols make them ineffective for practical implementation. Lately, Zhang et al. proposed an anonymous TMIS-based authentication scheme. Nonetheless, Zhang et al.’s protocol has been found vulnerable to password guessing, biometric parameter extraction, and server spoofing threat. We have designed an enhanced model countering the identified threats and drawbacks of contemporary TMIS-based schemes. Our proposed scheme includes the proven security features under formal analysis with BAN logic which makes certain the resilience of the contributed scheme.
