Abstract: Internet of things (IoT) aims to integrate several smart and heterogeneous devices, technologies, tools etc., through the Internet for remote access and data exchange. The integration of IoT devices and a cloud becomes an attractive solution for elderly people to resolve their health issues instantly without visiting a hospital. However, security of the patient’s important health information either during transmission or collecting them are very challenging issue. This aims to introduce an authentication based security scheme for protecting patient’s health data in IoT environment using NS2 simulation environment. Our proposed security scheme attain essential requirement and outperforms existing methods.
