Recent developments in Internet of Things (IoT) technologies have already put a huge impact on the medical and health sector. Thus, the patient treatment can be performed in more efficient ways compared with traditional methods. Secure identification is a key system requirement for patients to acquire these health related services. Fast and convenient identification is important in the case of critical and elderly or disabled patients who required frequent health services. In this paper, we are

Patients would have direct interaction with the environment and get identified through it. We propose a biometric based authentication scheme for the Naked hospital environment that also protects the patients identity privacy. In addition, we show that this authentication scheme can resist various well known attacks such as insider attacks, replay attacks and identity privacy among others.
