Abstract


Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) are fundamental technology in health care that permits the information of a patient’s essential body parameters to be gathered by the sensors. However, the safety and concealment defense of the gathered information is a key uncertain problem. A Hybrid Key Management (HKM) scheme [13] is worked based on Public Key Cryptography (PKC)-authentication scheme. This scheme uses a one-way hash function to construct a Merkle Tree. The PKC method increases the computational complexity and lacking scalability. Additionally, it increases expensive computation, communication costs, and delay. To overcome this problem, Improving Authentication in e-Healthcare System using ECC with signature Hash Function (IAH) is proposed. In this scheme, the ECC algorithm is used to verify sensor authentication. The system employs the hash-based key signature technique for checking second level sensor authentication in WBAN.In addition, the experimental result of the proposed system demonstrates the efficient data communication in the network.
