Security in Cross - Border Medical Data Interchange: A Technical Analysis and a Discussion of Possible Improvements

R. Martino, S. D’Antonio, L. Coppolino and L. Romano

Freedom of movement in the European Union (EU) requires the possibility to exchange healthcare - related information across borders. Such an interchange must face legal, technical and security issues. In this work, we provide a technical analysis of the state - of - the - art software for cross - border eHealth data exchange in the EU, namely OpenNCP, from the security point of view. Moreover, we present a number of solutions that will be developed during the 36 - months, EU - funded KONFIDO project to improve the security of healthcare - related data exchange and to add support for smart IoT sensors.
