The major purpose of Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) is to provide safety-related message access for motorists to react or make a life-critical decision for road safety enhancement. Accessing safety-related information through the use of VANET communications, therefore, must be protected, as motorists may make critical decisions in response to emergency… (More)
It is well recognised that adoption of information communication and technology (ICT) in healthcare can transform healthcare services. Numerous countries are seeking to establish national e-health development and implementation. To collect, store and process individual health information in an electronic system, healthcare providers need to comply with the… (More)
One of the primary flaws with current digital signature technology is that a digital signature does not " feel " or resemble a traditional seal or personal signature to the human observer; lacking a sense of visualisation and changing each time it is applied. This paper reviews the historical value of seals in Eastern and Western cultures to provide a basis… (More)
Ongoing concerns have been raised over the effectiveness of information technology products and systems in maintaining privacy protection for sensitive data. The aim is to ensure that sensitive health information can be adequately protected yet still be accessible only to those that "need-to-know". To achieve this and ensure sustainability over the longer… (More)
This paper investigates communication protocols for relaying sensor data from animal tracking applications back to base stations. While Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) are well suited to such challenging environments, most existing protocols do not consider the available energy that is particularly important when tracking devices can harvest energy. This… (More)
This paper proposes a viable IT-based solution for ensuring the privacy and security of sensitive information in contemporary Health Information Systems (HIS).
Open and trusted information systems/health informatics access control (OTHIS/HIAC). Abstract Information. and Communications Technologies globally are moving towards Service Oriented Architectures and Web Services. The healthcare environment is rapidly moving to the use of Service Oriented Architecture/Web Services systems interconnected via this global… (More)
Privacy and security in open and trusted health information systems.
To protect the health information security, cryptography plays an important role to establish confidentiality, authentication, integrity and non-repudiation. Keys used for encryption/decryption and digital signing must be managed in a safe, secure, effective and efficient fashion. The certificate-based Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) scheme may seem to be a… (More)
