This work addresses a basic problem of security systems that operate on very sensitive information, such as healthcare data. Specifically, we are interested in the problem of privately handling medical data represented by rational numbers. Considering the complicated computations on encrypted medical data, one of the natural and powerful tools for ensuring(More)
We introduce a cardiac rehabilitation program (CRP) that utilizes only a smartphone, with no external devices. As an efficient guide for cardiac rehabilitation exercise, we developed an application to automatically indicate the exercise intensity by comparing the estimated heart rate (HR) with the target heart rate zone (THZ). The HR is estimated using(More)
Biometric authentication methods are gaining popularity due to their convenience. For an authentication without relying on trusted hardwares, biometrics or their hashed values should be stored in the server. Storing biometrics in the clear or in an encrypted form, however, raises a grave concern about biometric theft through hacking or man-in-the middle(More)
In this study, we obtained a pulsatile photoplethysmogram (PPG) signal from a fingertip using the built-in camera of an iPhone 6 s and displayed a real-time heart activity images with holographic projection on a smartphone screen. Our proposed heart activity hologram is simple and can be easily realized with only a smartphone and overhead projector (OHP)(More)
Aster yellows group phytoplasmas were reclassified by analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence, their phylogeny and the presence of interoperon heterogeneity. Nine phytoplasmas were classified into subgroups 16SrI-B and 16SrI-D using the 16S rRNA gene sequence. Then, based on the presence of interoperon heterogeneity, subgroup 16SrI-B phytoplasmas were(More)
