Abstract

In this study security aspects are considered for the protection of medical information in patient telemonitoring schemes. In order to propose mechanisms to efficiently protect clinical information, it is presented a case study of a wireless network telemonitoring scheme, the results of a risk assessment to detect security problems in this type of schemes are analyzed.
