KONFIDO advances the state of the art of eHealth technology with respect to four key dimensions of digital security, namely: data preservation, data access and modification, data exchange, and interoperability and compliance.
To address the challenges of secure storage and exchange of eHealth data, protection and control over personal data, and security of health related data gathered by mobile devices, KONFIDO takes a holistic approach by targeting all architectural layers of an IT infrastructure. The concept for this system will be based on Bitcoin’s concept of block-chain transaction database where all transactions associated with a citizen’s electronic health record or personal health system will be incorporated in a unique chain of blocks.
A Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system will be specifically tailored for a federated architecture in the healthcare domain, fully compliant to the OpenNCP model. As such, it will be able to detect potential threats and abnormalities, perform comprehensive and intuitive analytics and implement escalating mitigation strategies.
The solutions proposed by KONFIDO seek to prevent unauthorized access, loss of data and cyber-attacks even from the cloud provider itself. The proposed solutions will be tested in a realistic setup and deployed upon a federated cloud-based infrastructure so as to exchange data and achieve interoperability of services cross-border.
Given that KONFIDO makes use of already widely accepted results and that it exploits a series of complementary technologies, some of which have already reached a high level of maturity, there is a significant potential concerning the cross-sector transfer of innovation in the field of coordinated care in respect to an improved acceptance of healthcare solutions.
