mHealth is having a profound and increasing impact on the delivery of medical and health services using mobile devices. However, many existing mHealth systems do not systematically address the security issues involved. As sensitive information is stored, exchanged and processed in these systems, issues like privacy, authentication, secure storage, accountability and permissions must be given top priority. In this paper we propose a protocol that provides end-to-end security, encrypted data storage and recovery mechanisms on mobile devices. We use openXdata as our reference mHealth system.
