Abstract

Mobile healthcare (m-Healthcare) is a burgeoning electronic healthcare segment, and is designed to improve the quality and safety of healthcare by combining advanced mobile communication technologies with eHealth systems. The objective of m-Healthcare is to provide ubiquitous healthcare services; however, its application in the life-critical vehicular environment has thus far received limited attention. In this paper, we propose mvSERS, a secure emergency response solution for vehicular environments. Based on existing advanced technologies, mvSERS facilitates secure real-time monitoring and rapid emergency responses. In particular, mvSERS utilizes dual emergency response centers to effectively process different levels of emergencies. We conduct a comprehensive security analysis to demonstrate that mvSERS meets fundamental security requirements, such as data confidentiality, authenticity and integrity; we also verify that it resists replay attacks, man-in-the-middle attacks, identity theft and forgery attacks. Simulated experiments are also performed to demonstrate that mvSERS achieves good performance in terms of reducing storage costs, computational complexity and communication overhead.
