Abstract: Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) is the most important recent trending approaches to provide Medical care for patients through remote monitoring and data collection using body sensors. It’s a well-known system offering a high standard of security and also privacy. Therefore, it provides us a very big interest for discussing the issues of privacy and security in WBAN. In this paper, the architecture of WBAN communication network, various safety threats and it’s measures, several types of research methodologies to secure health records and research issues are reviewed on the basis of various secure routing protocols of recent publications. Also, this paper tabulated the detailed comparison study of analysis of security requirements, resistance to various attacks, computing costs during authentication and running time between the application provider and the customer. At last, open fields are investigated for future research.
Keywords: Wireless Body Area Network protocol, Security, Privacy, Threats, Attacks.
Scope of the Article: Network Protocols & Wireless Networks.
