2 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 2 Outline Motivation: eHealth and Health Grids ICGrid: –Data and Metadata Privacy means Trust: –Legal Issues Protecting ICGrid: –Security Analysis –Proposed Privacy Protocol Conclusions and Future Work Publications

3 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 3 Motivation: eHealth and Health Grids eHealth describes the application of IT and communications technologies across the whole range of functions that affect the health sector eHealth (like eGoverment and eBanking) promises substantial productivity gains and restructured, citizen-centered health systems. eHealth requirements for advanced computing and storage facilities, gave birth to Health Grids.

4 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 4 ICGrid ICUs require mechanisms for data acquisition, validation, storage, analysis, reporting, etc. ICGrid has been prototyped over EGEE and the gLite middleware to cope with these needs. ICGrids hybrid architecture combines sensors and Grid-enabled software tools. A Hospitals ICU generates aprox. 33 Gb. per-day: –Metadata, including patients information and physicians annotations. –Actual sensors Data.

6 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 6 Privacy means Trust! Privacy is the right of an individual or group to hide information about themselves, disclosing it to Authorized entities. If Patients do not trust eHealth systems: –Give inaccurate or incomplete information. –Avoid care altogether. Therefore: –Patient with undetected and untreated conditions. –Future treatment may be compromised if the doctor misrepresents patient information. –Life-threatening situations!

7 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 7 Legal Issues Modern Data Protection Legislations highlight the Patients right to privacy. The heart of the European eHealth world is the Electronic Health Record (EHR). Based on current Data Protection Legislation, a patients (or authorized entity) consent legitimates EHR processing. How to implement a data security solution for ICGrid, compliant with eHealth Legislations?

9 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 9 Security Analysis Based on a security analysis framework for Data Grids. Identifies Players, Trust Assumptions, Security Primitives, Attacks and Damages (Leak, Change, Destroy). Current security mechanisms: –Secure inter-site channels (i.e. GSIFTP). –EGEE Central Services (i.e. CA, VOMS) and implemented AuthN/AuthZ mechanisms are trusted. Identified Vulnerabilities: –Attackers with revoked credentials (latency of revocation information). –Compromised Storage Elements provide full control over stored data.

10 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 10 Proposed Privacy Protocol (revised) Two basic mechanisms: –Cryptography (confidentiality, integrity) for Data and Metadata. Design criteria: performance, encryption keys do not transverse the network. –Fragmentation (high availability, confidentiality) only for the Data. Secondary mechanisms: –Mandatory Access Control for Metadata. –A Secure Log to back-trace operations.

11 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 11 Conclusions eHealth brings a citizen-centered Health System. ICGrid is a proof of Health Grid suitability for eHealth. Due to new vulnerabilities being introduced, keeping patients privacy has become a priority for Health Grids. Comprehensive Privacy Solution: –Legal: Data Protection laws and harmonization. –Technological: R+D

12 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 12 Our previous Security Analysis found that a successful attack to Storage Elements may fully compromise stored metadata and data. A Privacy Protocol (cryptography, fragmentation) has been proposed for ICGrid. Early results show that a central Data Encryption Service is feasible (performance, security).

13 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 13 Future Work: –Metadata: AMGAs encryption and consent (digital signatures?). –Data: Crypto-performance tests, Fragmentation (do we really need it?). –Implementation over the gLite Middleware (Hydra, AMGA, SRM).

16 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 16 Proposed Security Architecture over gLite Compression Mandatory Access Control + Encryption Data Encryption+ Fragmentation Fragmented+Encrypted Data GSIFTP Encryption Key Never Disclosed Secure Logging capabilities

17 European Research Network on Foundations, Software Infrastructures and Applications for large scale distributed, GRID and Peer-to-Peer Technologies 17 Example: Electronic Health Card (Germany) To replace European Health Insurance Card. Patient decides IF and WHICH information can be recorded or deleted and WHO has access to it. Two-keys principle: –The card itself. –PIN as sign of consent. In emergencies, data can be accessed with a Health Professional Card (i.e. ICU, paramedics). 50 most recent accesses are logged. Administrative Data Cryptoprocessor
