Abstract

Body Area Network (BAN) is an emerging technology which receives significant interest recent years. Typical BAN applications include healthcare, military, sports and firstresponder. There is a great need to make BAN data transmission secure, accurate and protected. This paper presents a twotier Secure Group communication framework (SG-BAN) for BAN data exchange, file sharing and remote display. Secure communication within a BAN (intraBAN) and between BANs (interBAN) are supported. At the interBAN level, group keys are issued/revoked when members join/leave the group to ensure the security policy. At the intraBAN level, device keys and Media Access Control (MAC) addresses are combined to secure communication within a BAN. The performance of the prototype is also presented. © 2008 IEEE.
