Sensors and Wireless Communication for Medical Care Anu Bhargava and Michael ZoltowskiCERIAS and ECE DepartmentPurdue UniversityWest Lafayette, IN 47907abhargav@purdue.edumikedz@ecn.purdue.eduPresented by Anu Bhargava This research is supported by CERIAS security center and NSF REU grant of Prof. Arif Ghafoor and Mike Zoltowski.1Security and SafetyMedical care environments are vulnerable to malicious behavior, hostile setting, terrorism attacks, natural disaster, tampering.Computing nodes and sensors can be malicious, selfish, malfunctioning, or compromised.Challenge is to develop sensors that detect and monitor violations in medical care environments before threat to life occurs.Reliability, Security, Accuracy can affect timeliness and precise information for patient monitoring.Collaboration among physicians/nurses, pharmacies, emergency personnel, law enforcement agencies, government/community leaders over wireless network should be secure, private, reliable, consistent/correct and anonymous.2Technology and Type of SensorsSensors and wireless devices have limited computation, communication, and energy.High rate of temporary or lasting failure.Tiny, inexpensive, mobile sensors are becoming available.Microsensors consist of 8-bit 4-MHz processors.Bio-sensors to detect Anthrax, viruses, toxins, bacteria uses chips coated with antibodies that attract a specific biological agent. Pattern changes result in alerts.Ion trap mass spectrometer aids in locating fingerprints of proteins to detect toxin or bacteria.Neutron-based detectors detect chemical and nuclear materials.Research is underway on sensor fusion, topology management, smart dust, scalability, and wireless communication issues.Characteristics of sensors include size, battery consumption, energy level, movement, position, redundancy, failure mode (failed, degrading, Byzantine).3Research IssuesSmart Antennae Omni-directional antenna has a problem with congestion and eavesdropping. One solution is smart antennae with multiple sub-antennae and switches (sectorized, phase array, and adaptive array). Sectorized has elements that aim in different directions and only one sector is energized with Radio Frequency. Phase-array can steer a main lobe in any direction, but not capable of forming nulls. Adaptive-arrays can form multiple main lobes and steerable nulls in the direction of interferes.Jam Resistant Antennae Two antennae on each device and use polarization in a way to receive signals from one direction. Channel estimation possible when distinct antennae have different polarization or significant spatial separation.4Fault-tolerant AuthenticationIf base station fails, use backup controller in the immediate neighborhood.Hierarchy of base stations with multiple keys can be used.Denial of Service Attacks and Intruder IdentificationFlooding by a malicious host, impersonation, gang attack, Byzantine behavior.Suspicion lists, black list can be created to ignore sensors.Privacy and AnonymityLocation of sensor.Source of data.False accusation.HIPPA regulations for medical data.Limited access and disclosure.Energy ConservationAggregation of data and pattern identification.Routers need to be computationally efficient for energy.5Sensors in a Patient’s EnvironmentSafety and Security in Patient’s RoomMonitor the entrance and access to a patient’s room.Monitor pattern of activity with respect to devices connected to a patient.Protect patients from neglect, abuse, harm, tampering, movement of patient outside the safety zone.Monitor visitor clothing to guarantee hygiene and prevention of infections.Safety and Security of the HospitalMonitor temperature, humidity, air quality.Identify obstacles for mobile stretchers.Protect access to FDA controlled products, narcotics, and special drugs.Monitor tampering with medicine, fraud in prescriptions.Protect against electromagnetic attacks, power outages, and discharge of biological agent.6Privacy and Security of Network and Computer SystemsPrivacy of patient record and identification.Protect against changes to patient records or treatment plan.Protect against disabling monitoring devices, switching off/crashing computers, flawed software, disabling messages.QoS issues for multimedia dataVulnerabilities of wireless communication protocols such as 802.11 and bluetooth. Decrypting traffic, injection of new traffic, attacks from jamming devices.7Measures of Safety and SecurityNumber of incidents per day in patient room, ward, or hospital.Non-emergency calls to nurses and doctors due to malfunctions, failures, or intrusions.False fire alarms, smoke detectors, pagers activation.Wrong information, data values, lost or delayed messages.Timeliness, Accuracy, Precision.8ConclusionUse of sensors can increase safety and security.But can be used by terrorists to kill all electronic, disrupt or destroy digital devices, and control information flow.9
