Secure authentication and information transfer in a hospital environment
A comparison and evaluation of authentication systems and communication technologies
[Examensarbete på avancerad nivå]
I dene the problem of a secure and simple assignment handover system. Next, I evaluate and compare 10 dierent technologies, from three approximate groups: Visual light, radio and biometric. Additionally, I combine some of these technologies evaluate and these combinations. Further, I propose some solutions that could solve the problem of designing an assignment handover system. I also develop a handover system framework that can perform a handover, thus being used to test the viability of the proposed solutions. However, no authentication was implemented into the framework, due to time constraints. Thus, the framework needs an authentication process before testing its viability in real life. Nevertheless, the framework handover system is both user-friendly and secure. Such a system also increases availability and reduce the complexity of the handover process.
