Summary

A new paradigm, known as the Internet of Things (IoT), has been extensively focused and promptly deemed as an enabling technology for the next generation healthcare and health systems. At the same time, important security and privacy issues emerge. First, as the IoT technologies bring massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC) use cases, it is important to address the security and privacy issues of massive medical and healthcare equipment connecting to the infrastructure of IoT healthcare and health systems. In addition, innovative technologies, such as Blockchain and 5G, are considered as the underlying information communication technologies of IoT healthcare and health infrastructures. The data confidentiality, integrity and authenticity for these innovative IoT healthcare and health infrastructures become indispensable. Examples are such as supplementary devices or security chips to support the authenticity and integrity of data collected from healthcare and health equipment. Moreover, it is critical to develop security inspection technologies, e.g., analysis tools for vulnerabilities identification and management, for IoT medical and healthcare equipment.

 

Therefore, in this special issue, we aim to focus on the security and privacy for IoT in Healthcare and Health. The objective of this special issue is to attract high-quality research and survey articles that promote research and reflect the most recent advances in addressing the security and privacy issues for IoT in Healthcare and Health. We welcome researchers from both academia and industry to provide their state-of-the-art technologies and ideas covering all aspects of security and privacy solutions for IoT in Healthcare and Health. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

 

• Secure and Privacy-aware Applications for IoT Healthcare and Health

• Secure and Privacy-aware Equipment for IoT Healthcare and Health

• Security and Privacy in Data Analytics for IoT Healthcare and Health

• Detection and Prevention of Malicious IoT Equipment in Healthcare and Health
