    Abstract

    :

    Using cloud storage, users can remotely store their data and enjoy the on-demand high-quality applications and services from a shared pool of configurable computing resources, without the burden of local data storage and maintenance. Hospital Information system such as Telemedicine is an important application which is recently gaining momentum on cloud. As telemedicine not only promises to dramatically reduce the costs, but at the same time it makes access to care easier for patients and makes more revenue attainable for practices. Despite cloud's attractiveness, it has got tremendous security concerns including accessibility issues, user authentication, confidentiality concerns, and verification of data integrity, risk identification and mitigation, as well as insider threats from cloud provider staff. Precise identification of the patient/clinician during authentication process is a vital requirement for telemedicine cloud services as it involves sensitive physiological data. This paper proposes a secure cloud architecture which includes an authentication system for telemedicine cloud using a set of different unobtrusive physiological sensors (ECG) and web camera that continuously authenticate the identity of the user. This new type of authentication is called dynamic authentication. We further extend our result to enable the TPA to perform audits for multiple patients simultaneously and efficiently. Extensive security and performance analysis show the proposed schemes are provably secure and highly efficient.
