Abstract

With the rapid development of Internet of Things (IoT) and medical informatization, various kinds of intelligent medical devices have emerged in the market. Intelligent medical devices are capable of monitoring the health condition of the patient through sensors and sending those information to third parties. However, if there are no management and encryption of the information to ensure accuracy, those devices will not be able to monitor health condition accurately or even cause medical accidents. Under the circumstances, a secure data transmission scheme based on Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is proposed. This scheme controls energy efficiency by transferring the high energy consumption of asymmetric encryption calculation to third parties. This paper also estimates the data transmission energy consumption of certain kind of wireless device, which implements the scheme to ensure feasibility.
