Abstract – Wireless medical sensor networks (MSNs) are a key enabling technology in e-healthcare that allows the data of a patient’s vital body parameters to be collected by the wearable or implantable biosensors. However, the security and privacy protection of the collected data is a major unsolved issue, with challenges coming from the stringent resource constraints of MSN devices, and the high demand for both security/privacy and practicality. In this paper, we propose a lightweight and secure system for MSNs. The system employs hash-chain based key updating mechanism and proxy protected signature technique to achieve efficient secure transmission and fine-grained data access control. Furthermore, we extend the system to provide backward secrecy and privacy preservation. 

Keywords— Access Control, Data Transmission, Medical Sensor Networks, Security
