E-Healthcare, Security Protocol, Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, Network Attacks, Passive and Active Attack


Emerging technologies including such Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain contribute significantly to the improvement of health services. The purpose of this chapter is to achieve and democratize services through the provision of medical care as a service. The result was the development of medical gadgets integrating healthcare sensors. It links medical equipment like the temperature controller to the cloud environment of medical doctors and staff. This study introduced the combination of IoT and Blockchain as a secure platform to reduce the scarcity of nurses. Blockchain was employed for storing and validating patient information in the proposed operating framework. A significant reduction in nursing gaps for large-scale patients has been shown. All technological specifications have been given to allow the prototyping execution of these suggested medical services simply adaptable. This article deals with Blockchain technology inclusion in Remote Medical Monitoring Devices Internet of Things (IoT) security. The document provides the advantages of Blockchain based safety methods and practical barriers in remote health monitoring via IoT devices. The study also examines several cryptographic methods appropriate for IoT implementation.
