Abstract: Safe and high-quality healthcare service is of supreme significance to patients. Security and patients’ privacy of healthcare data are imperative problems that will have a large impact on the upcoming accomplishment of Healthcare with IoT. A major problem in the IoT dependent healthcare system is the fortification of privacy. Usually, a healthcare service contributor receives data from its patients and distributes them with healthcare experts or registered clinics. The contributor may perhaps share out the data to pharmaceutical companies and health insurance companies. Hence, for overcoming the challenges existing in security, this paper has come out with a privacy-preserving technique with significant data extraction from IoT devices linked with healthcare sector. According to the adopted scheme, the information obtained from IoT devices is processed for preserving the sensitive data, such that unknown people are prohibited to access them. Here, Grey Wolf Optimization (GWO) scheme is proposed to recognize the optimal key. The objective of the proposed scheme is to minimize hiding failure rate, modification degree, and true positive value for better preservation of sensitive data. Moreover, the implemented technique is distinguished with conventional schemes like Genetic Algorithm (GA), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Ant Bee Colony (ABC), Firefly (FF) and Differential Evolution (DE) algorithms in terms of performance. Also, the statistical analysis of the presented method is measured for three test cases, and the effectiveness of the implemented method is revealed.
