Abstract EN

The Internet of Health Things (IoHT) is an extended breed of the Internet of Things (IoT), which plays an important role in the remote sharing of data from various physical processes such as patient monitoring, treatment progress, observation, and consultation.

The key benefit of the IoHT platform is the ease of time-independent interaction from geographically distant locations by offering preventive or proactive healthcare services at a lower cost.

The communication, integration, computation, and interoperability in IoHT are provided by various low-power biomedical sensors equipped with limited computational capabilities.

Therefore, conventional cryptographic solutions are not feasible for the majority of IoHT applications.

In addition, executing computing-intensive tasks will lead to a slow response time that can deteriorate the performance of IoHT.

We strive to resolve such a deficiency, and thus a new scheme has been proposed in this article, called an online-offline signature scheme in certificateless settings.

The scheme divides the signing part into two phases, i.e., online and offline.

In the absence of a message, the offline phase performs computationally intensive tasks, while lighter computations are executed in the online phase when there is a message.

Security analyses and comparisons with the respective existing schemes are carried out to show the feasibility of the proposed scheme.

The results obtained authenticate that the proposed scheme offers enhanced security with lower computational and communication costs.
