International Journal of Information and Computer Security (IJICS), Vol. 11, No. 4/5, 2019

Abstract: Along with the large-scale proliferation of IoT-networks and information technology, users can obtain the information resources conveniently via intelligent device. Therefore authentication mechanism is a fundamental tool for ensuring secure communications and the validity of communicating party. Specially, focusing on healthcare applications based on IoT-networks.This paper proposes an efficient authentication model called 'Elngar authentication model' (EAM)-based IoT medical data system for anonymous users using elliptic curves cryptosystem (ECC) which achieves mutual authentication and forward security. Specifically, this paper certify the legitimacy of the proposed via employing BAN-logic, which is one of the important formal methods. Further, the performance comparison shows that EAM model is more suitable for IoT medical applications where efficiency and security concerned.
