In this paper we investigating on Personal health record (PHR),which is a patient-centric model of health information exchange, and is stored at a third party i.e., cloud providers. But there are concerns such as personal health information can be exposed to third party servers and to unauthorized parties. In order to assure the patients’ authority over approach to their personal PHRs, it is an assuring method to encrypt the PHRs before outsourcing. These are issues like elastic access, reliability in key management; privacy exposure and efficient user revocation have continued to be the most significant dispute towards accomplishing fine-grained, cryptographically imposed data access control. Sequentially to have control for data access to PHRs stored in semi trusted severs, a novel patient-centric structure and a suite of methods is proposed in this paper. We leverage attribute-based encryption (ABE) practices to attain scalable and fine grained data access control for personal health records to encrypt each patient’s PHR file. In this paper, we concentrate on the several data owner situation, which is different from earlier works in secure data outsourcing. It divides the users in the PHR system into several security domains which decreases the key management complexity for owners and users. Simultaneously, patient confidentiality is maintained and guaranteed by exploiting multiauthority ABE.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
