Enabling the IoT Paradigm in E-health Solutions through the VIRTUS Middleware

2012 IEEE 11th International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications, 2012

In Europe, in a context of growing population and decreasing resources, ageing related diseases represent one of the most relevant challenges in terms of healthcare organization complexity, plus care levels and system financing balancing. Nowadays there are several researches that are studying the application of the IoT (Internet of Things) paradigm in the e-health field. This paper explains how a ...


The VIRTUS Middleware: An XMPP Based Architecture for Secure IoT Communications

2012 21st International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN), 2012

Before a wider adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) vision occurs, many urgent technological and social challenging issues still need to be addressed, including device interoperability, systems autonomy, privacy and security concerns, which could have a significant impact on several aspects of everyday-life or potential end-user. Due to the very large number of technologies normally in place within the ...

  • Enabling the IoT Paradigm in E-health Solutions through the VIRTUS Middleware

    In Europe, in a context of growing population and decreasing resources, ageing related diseases represent one of the most relevant challenges in terms of healthcare organization complexity, plus care levels and system financing balancing. Nowadays there are several researches that are studying the application of the IoT (Internet of Things) paradigm in the e-health field. This paper explains how a solution, built on the top of the VIRTUS IoT middleware, provides a valid alternative to current IoT solutions, which are mainly based on SOA (Service Oriented Architecture). VIRTUS leverage an Instant Messaging protocol (XMPP) to guarantee a (near) real-time, secure and reliable communication channel among heterogeneous devices. The presented development has been exploited in a healthcare case study: an implementation of a cost-savvy remote body movement monitoring system, aimed at classify daily patients' activities, designed as a modular architecture and deployed in a large scale scenario. The paper analyzes the features offered by the VIRTUS middleware, if used within a e-health solution, providing a comparison with other well-known systems.

  • The VIRTUS Middleware: An XMPP Based Architecture for Secure IoT Communications

    Before a wider adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) vision occurs, many urgent technological and social challenging issues still need to be addressed, including device interoperability, systems autonomy, privacy and security concerns, which could have a significant impact on several aspects of everyday-life or potential end-user. Due to the very large number of technologies normally in place within the IoT paradigm, some type of middleware layer is employed to enforce seamless integration of devices and data within the same information network. Within such middleware, data must be exchanged respecting strict protection constraints. Both the networking and security issues have driven the design and the development of the VIRTUS Middleware, an IoT middleware relying on the open XMPP protocol to provide secure event- driven communications within an IoT scenario. Leveraging the standard security features provided by XMPP, the middleware offers a reliable and secure communication channel for distributed applications, protected with both authentication (through TLS protocol) and encryption (SASL protocol) mechanisms. The proposed architecture provides the possibility to isolate an instance of VIRTUS, allowing the exchange of data only within a private network. This paper presents an overview of VIRTUS, providing an overall platform description and details regarding its security features.
