Abstract: Privacy is one of the biggest concerns that hinder most organizations to adopt the Big Data technology. Some mechanisms and systems have been set-up to handle huge databases. Nevertheless, the scalability requirements of Big Data are far beyond the conventional databases to handle. Therefore, it is trivial to set-up scalable privacy algorithms for conventional databases. Most data are stored in a single location, which means the records it keeps are open and effortlessly irrefutable to third parties. Centralized versions of this data make it too easy for hackers to attack. As such, in this paper, we present the opportunities and challenges of implementing cryptography and blockchain for privacy perseverance in Big Data, focusing in the healthcare domain. In addition, we also present some use cases of integrating Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) into healthcare database framework for anchoring information security and privacy.
