In this paper we detail the security and privacy architecture and implementation of the HealthNet mobile electronic health monitoring and data collection system. HealthNet consists of a body sensor network embedded in clothing that communicates wirelessly to the wearer's mobile phone. The mobile phone is used to manage, store and transfer the data in a secure way. Data may be transferred to other parties, such as medical experts, emergency care and private parties trusted by the wearer himself, e.g. his family. The patient controls who may access his data. Only emergency physicians nearby the patient may access vital data without the patient's individual consent. We describe the unique security and privacy features of our architecture which may also be used to improve other telemonitoring solutions.
