Health records data security is one of the main challenges in e-health
systems. Authentication is one of the essential security services to support
the stored data confidentiality, integrity, and availability. This research
focuses on the secure storage of patient and medical records in the healthcare
sector where data security and unauthorized access is an ongoing issue. A
potential solution comes from biometrics, although their use may be
time-consuming and can slow down data retrieval. This research aims to overcome
these challenges and enhance data access control in the healthcare sector
through the addition of biometrics in the form of fingerprints. The proposed
model for application in the healthcare sector consists of Collection, Network
communication, and Authentication (CNA) using biometrics, which replaces an
existing password-based access control method. A sensor then collects data and
by using a network (wireless or Zig-bee), a connection is established, after
connectivity analytics and data management work which processes and aggregate
the data. Subsequently, access is granted to authenticated users of the
application. This IoT-based biometric authentication system facilitates
effective recognition and ensures confidentiality, integrity, and reliability
of patients, records and other sensitive data. The proposed solution provides
reliable access to healthcare data and enables secure access through the
process of user and device authentication. The proposed model has been
developed for access control to data through the authentication of users in
healthcare to reduce data manipulation or theft.
