Abstract

This paper provides detailed solutions for trust delegation and security protection for medical records in public mobile communication networks. The solutions presented in this paper enable the development of software for mobile devices that can be used by emergency medical units in urgent need of sensitive personal information about unconscious patients. In today’s world, technical improvements in mobile communication systems mean that users can expect to have access to data at any time regardless of their location. This paper presents a token-based procedure for the data security at a mobile device and delegation of trust between a requesting mobile unit and secure medical data storage. The data security at the mobile device is enabled using identity based key generation methodology.
