The Internet and mobile networks have penetrated the healthcare sector due to their increased functionality, low cost, high reliability and easy-to-use nature. However, in such healthcare environment the privacy and security of the transmitted information must be preserved. When dealing with health sensitive information at times it is vital to protect the patientpsilas identity and their health sensitive information from third parties. In this paper we present a protocol that will authenticate and authorize patients to healthcare services without providing the patientpsilas identification. The protocol protects patientpsilas privacy with a secure anonymous authentication to healthcare services, where the patient has access to a complete set of healthcare services.
