There has been a host of research works on wireless sensor networks (WSN) for medical applications. However, the major shortcoming of these efforts is a lack of consideration of data management. Indeed, the huge amount of high sensitive data generated and collected by medical sensor networks introduces several challenges that existing architectures cannot solve. These challenges include scalability, availability and security. Furthermore, WSNs for medical applications provide useful and real information about patients’ health state. This information should be available for healthcare providers to facilitate response and to improve the rescue process of a patient during emergency. Hence, emergency management is another challenge for medical wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we propose an innovative architecture for collecting and accessing large amount of data generated by medical sensor networks. Our architecture overcomes all the aforementioned challenges and makes easy information sharing between healthcare professionals in normal and emergency situations. Furthermore, we propose an effective and flexible security mechanism that guarantees confidentiality, integrity as well as fine-grained access control to outsourced medical data. This mechanism relies on Ciphertext Policy Attribute-based Encryption (CP-ABE) to achieve high flexibility and performance. Finally, we carry out extensive simulations that allow showing that our scheme provides an efficient, fine-grained and scalable access control in normal and emergency situations.
