Abstract

Due to its heavy reliance on wireless technologies, mobile telemedicine suffers from the same set of security and privacy problems as its underlying technical standards (such as WLAN, MANET, WPAN, 3G, RFID, and WSN) face. This chapter looks into how each of these wireless technologies is being used in mobile telemedicine (see Table 10.1 for a summary), and discusses the security and privacy measures they provide (see Table 10.2). In addition, the current regulatory environment is considered to offer an in-depth view of how the security and privacy safeguards (made available by the state-of-the-art technologies) are being enforced in real-life situations. The chapter is concluded by a discussion of outstanding security and privacy issues in mobile telemedicine.
