Mobile Healthcare Networks (MHN) continuouslycollect the patients' health data sensed by wearable devices, andanalyze the collected data pre-processed by servers combinedwith medical histories, such that disease diagnosis and treatmentare improved, and the heavy burden on the existing healthservices is released. However, the network is vulnerable to Sybilattacks, which would degrade network performance, disruptproceedings, manipulate data or cheat others maliciously. What'smore, the user is reluctant to leak identity privacy, so the identityprivacy preserving makes Sybil defenses more difficult. One ofthe best choices is mutually authenticating each other with noidentity information involved. Thus, we propose a fine-grainedauthentication scheme based on Attribute-Based Signature (ABS)using lattice assumption, where a signer is authorized by an at-tribute set instead of single identity string. This ABS scheme usesFiat-Shamir framework and supports flexible threshold signaturepredicates. Moreover, to anonymously guarantee integrity andavailability of health data in MHN, we design an anonymousanti-Sybil attack protocol based on our ABS scheme, so thatSybil attacks are prevented. As there is no linkability betweenidentities and services, the users' identity privacy is protected. Finally, we have analyzed the security and simulated the runningtime for our proposed ABS scheme.

Currently, dependence on web applications is increasing rapidly for social communication, health services, financial transactions and many other purposes. Unfortunately, the presence of cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in these applications allows malicious user to steals sensitive information, install malware, and performs various malicious operations. Researchers proposed various approaches and developed tools to detect XSS vulnerability from source code of web applications. However, existing approaches and tools are not free from false positive and false negative results. In this paper, we propose a taint analysis and defensive programming based HTML context-sensitive approach for precise detection of XSS vulnerability from source code of PHP web applications. It also provides automatic suggestions to improve the vulnerable source code. Preliminary experiments and results on test subjects show that proposed approach is more efficient than existing ones.
