Medical information is moving online. Simultaneously, ubiquitous and medical technologies are making homes aware, active, responsive, and thus vulnerable. Examples of unique security challenges include defense against traffic analysis with medium latency requirements for physical security or some cases of medical monitoring, or sensor networks that need to be managed (and be made trustworthy) by technically inexperienced or/and ill users. These challenges are compounded when the technology in the home is for the purpose of monitoring for medical purposes. Medical monitoring and home monitoring of vulnerable populations create unique security and privacy risks in design and application.
