Abstract

With the growing number of patients and at the same time relative growth in wireless technology has made the wireless body sensor networks (WBSN) boom in the market. WBSN allows its users to access the body sensor data and resources anywhere in the world with the help of the Internet. It will help in reducing the treatment cost, providing efficient services, better analysis reports and faster access to treatment. But though there are so many benefits, security and privacy of data remain a major concern. So, in this paper, we have discussed WBSN and its architecture thoroughly. We have also discussed the security and privacy issues, proposed solutions to the respective security issues and described the kind of authentication scheme used. Additionally, we have compared the existing paper related to the WBSN authentication type in the tabular form.
