Abstract: Internet of things (IoT) is earning a significant role in the health care domain. Though the growing benefits to improve the health process and services and the large use of the Wearable Internet of Things (WIoT) devices, the patient’s privacy issue remains a big concern. While IoT devices and its applications are more exposed to privacy risks, there is a need for a stick and strict guidelines and solutions to assist and solve this issue and minimize these risks. The aim of this paper is to survey the end-user concerns of the privacy issues related to WIoT then we review conducted on current solutions that are worked toward preserving privacy in the healthcare domain, and finally, we state our solution. This paper aims to survey end users’ privacy and security concerns and issues related to WIoT.
Keywords: Internet of Things (IoT); preserving-privacy; Wearable IoT; Privacy; differential privacy.
