Abstract

In this paper we will outline the importance of mobile data communication in healthcare, accessibility of health information through mobile devices, and information security of personal health information. Firstly, we illustrate issues and importance of securing personal health information in mobile environment. Then we proceed with a novel idea of authenticating the health information in mobile environment by incorporating the concept of short signarure schemes. The resulting notion is extremely efficient and it requires a very short signature to perform the authenticity function for the health information stored in the mobile devices.
