Abstract

In this paper, we identify the security and privacy issues specific to wireless health monitoring devices and describe solutions for protecting wireless communications against side channel attacks and in particular traffic analysis attacks. This process takes place by means of data obfuscation and modifications of communication protocol architectures in order to limit exposed information of system architecture to potential attackers. Initial network simulations of the proposed methods show the feasibility of these methods.
