AbstractWith the development of IoT, smart health has significantly improved the quality of people's life. A large amount of smart health monitoring system has been proposed, which provides an opportunity for timely and efficient diagnosis. Nevertheless, most of them ignored the impact of environment on patients' health. Due to the openness of the communication channel, data security and privacy preservation are crucial problems to be solved. In this work, an environment aware privacy-preserving authentication protocol based on the fuzzy extractor and elliptic curve cryptography (ecc) is designed for health monitoring system with mutual authentication and anonymity. Edge computing unit can authenticate all environmental sensors at one time. Fuzzy synthetic evaluation model is utilized to evaluate the environment equality with the patients' temporal health index (THI) as an assessment factor, which can help to predict the appropriate environment. The session key is established for secure communication based on the predicted result. Through security analysis, the proposed protocol can prevent common attacks. Moreover, performance analysis shows that the proposed protocol is applicable for resource-limited smart devices in edge computing health monitoring system.
