Abstract

 We explain how a solution for data privacy, and specifically for cognitive security, can be enforced and guaranteed using blockchain technology in SAAL (Smart Ambient Assisted Living) environments. Using our proposal the access to a patient’s clinical process is secure for the adequate interested and authorized parties while resist tampering and ransomware attacks that have recently plagued the HIS (Hospital Information Systems) in various countries.
