Wearable health monitoring systems (WHMSs) have become the most effective and practical solutions to provide users with low-cost, noninvasive, long-term continuous health monitoring. Authentication is one of the key means to ensure physiological information security and privacy. Although numerous authentication protocols have been proposed, few of them cater to crossdomain WHMSs. In this paper, we present an efficient and provably secure crossdomain multifactor authentication protocol for

Specifically, a mobile device of one domain can request a ticket from the cloud server of another domain with which wearable devices are registered and remotely access the wearable devices with the ticket. Secondly, we propose a crossdomain three-factor authentication scheme based on the above model. Only a doctor who can present all three factors can request a legitimate ticket and use it to access the wearable devices. Finally, a comprehensive security analysis of the proposed scheme is carried out. In particular, we give a provable security analysis in the random oracle model. The comparisons of security and efficiency with the related schemes demonstrate that the proposed scheme is secure and practical.
