Secure and pervasive communication framework using Named Data Networking for connected healthcare

Dudeja, Rajan Kumar and Bali, Rasmeet Singh and Aujla, Gagangeet Singh (2022) 'Secure and pervasive communication framework using Named Data Networking for connected healthcare.', Computers and Electrical Engineering, 100 . p. 107806.


Connected healthcare system is one of the most critical Internet of Things (IoT) applications offering numerous healthcare services. But it requires the next-generation technologies to collude with the IoT standards to provide prompt end-user services. Thus, a data-centric network architecture like, Named Data Network (NDN) can be effective to tackle the concerns related to communication in the connected healthcare. In this article, we propose a Secure and Pervasive Health Care Framework (SecPHCF) that attempts to process healthcare data securely and transmit it using NDN thereby aiding faster healthcare support. The data dissemination model in SecPHCF contains two operating modes, (a) a consumer-based model where the end-user initiates the data communication process and (b) a producer-based model where alert messages indicating critical conditions trigger the transmission. SecPHCF is validated through extensive simulations on different network scenarios by considering evaluation parameters such as throughput, network delay, packet delivery ratio, and computation overheads.
