Cloud computing has become an integral part of the operation of health. However, there are major security and privacy issues in terms of accessing medical records from the hybrid cloud environment. In this paper, a new secure hybrid Electronic Health Record system is proposed. In this framework, two efficient encryption methods are combined for fine grained access control and protection of data privacy. Multi-authority and Key-based encryption schemes are used for the encryption of each part of health records after dividing those records using a vertical partitioning method. Multi-authority encryption schemes are primarily used in the Public Domains (PUDs), while Key-based encryption schemes are prevalent in Personal Domains (PSDs). Together, they provide, secure data access and authentication of users. Implementation is facilitated using Windows Azure Cloud Computing platform.

OtherIn the recent years, cloud computing has cultivated the outsourcing of computing resources like IT infrastructures, service platforms, and software. With the emergence of ultra-fast 4G mobile networks and highly-featured smartphones, tablets, and wearable computing devices (e.g., with always growing sensing capabilities), the prerequisites are now met for bringing cloud computing to the mobile domain. While first commercial products are restricted to the sharing of files, contacts, etc. among different devices, more sophisticated applications still have to be developed. Future applications of mobile cloud computing will take advantage of the many sensors available on mobile devices, enable new utilization of their generated big data, and have an impact on almost all activities of our social and business life, and include, but are not limited to, mobile marketing, social networks, smart cities, health care, and business processes.

IEEE Mobile Cloud 2017 will provide a great platform to allow researchers and professionals in the industry to exchange their latest research results and development activities on mobile cloud computing and services. The primary objective is to share research ideas and results, emerging industry technologies, and latest advances.
