Abstract

The proliferation and usefulness of cloud computing in eHealth demands high levels of security and privacy for health records. However, eHealth clouds pose serious security and privacy concerns for sensitive health data. Therefore, practical and effective methods for security and privacy management are essential to preserve the privacy and security of the data. To review the current research directions in security and privacy in eHealth clouds, this study has analysed and summarized the state of the art technologies and approaches reported in security and privacy in the eHealth cloud. An extensive review covering 132 studies from several peer-reviewed databases such as IEEE Xplore was conducted. The relevant studies were reviewed and summarized in terms of their benefits and risks. This study also compares several research works in the domain of data security requirements. This paper will provide eHealth stakeholders and researchers with extensive knowledge and information on current research trends in the areas of privacy and security.
