Study of Cryptographic Algorithms to Protect Electronic Medical Records in Mobile Platforms


Objectives: The aim of this paper is to analyze a set of cryptographic algorithms to protect medical records in the context of mobile applications. Methods: We analyzed the use of cryptography in a data set of medical health records taking into account the use of computing memory, processing and time in each studied algorithm. A system prototype was developed with the most efficient algorithm found after experimentation. Findings: Results show that health records are properly secured in a mobile scenario with good performance in terms of computational resources. Applications: This study will help mobile software developers to understand the importance of writing secure software in health systems.
