The current medical cyber physical systems involve a wide range of institutions and a large number of participants. Data sharing among distributed medical institutions is already a development trend. However, the security is worrying; e.g., the access to medical data lacks uniformity and standardization. What is more, data is easy to be tampered with and leaked. This has a very negative impact on the medical industry. Therefore, a strict and reliable access control mechanism for data in the

We deal with how to design effective access control in medical cyber physical systems. Combined with blockchain technology, we design the medical cyber physical systems based on blockchain data access control mechanism and unite data in the chain of union Fabric network resources access control. We qualitatively classify medical data, define the weight level of different data, design a medical data access framework based on blockchain, build an applicable model, formulate access control strategy, and specify the role assignment and access task matching of users, so as to achieve secure and effective data access control. The Hyperledger Fabric network is established as the alliance chain for managing access control rights distribution through smart contracts so as to achieve case-based medical data access control under the blockchain.
