David Kotz. A threat taxonomy for mHealth privacy. Proceedings of the Workshop on Networked Healthcare Technology (NetHealth), article 1, 6 pages. IEEE, January 2011. doi:10.1109/COMSNETS.2011.5716518. ©Copyright IEEE.


Networked mobile devices have great potential to enable individuals (and their physicians) to better monitor their health and to manage medical conditions. In this paper, we examine the privacy-related threats to these so-called mHealth technologies. We develop a taxonomy of the privacy-related threats, and discuss some of the technologies that could support privacy-sensitive mHealth systems. We conclude with a brief summary of research challenges.
