  • BAN-trust: An attack-resilient malicious node detection scheme for body area networks

    Body area networks (BAN) has recently emerged as an important enabling technology to support various telehealth applications. Because of its unique application domain, it is critical to ensure the secure and reliable gathering of patient's physiological signs. However, most of the existing security solutions for BANs focus on using encryption techniques to secure the data transmission or provide authentication. On the other hand, it is well understood that BANs are also extremely vulnerable to various malicious attacks, which have not attracted abundant research attention so far. In this paper, an attack-resilient malicious node detection scheme (BAN-Trust) is proposed for wireless body area networks that is able to detect and cope with malicious attacks in BANs. The effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed BAN-Trust scheme is validated through extensive experiments.

  • IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks - Part 15.6: Wireless Body Area Networks

    Short-range, wireless communications in the vicinity of, or inside, a human body (but not limited to humans) are specified in this standard. It uses existing industrial scientific medical (ISM) bands as well as frequency bands approved by national medical and/or regulatory authorities. Support for quality of service (QoS), extremely low power, and data rates up to 10 Mbps is required while simultaneously complying with strict non-interference guidelines where needed. This standard considers effects on portable antennas due to the presence of a person (varying with male, female, skinny, heavy, etc.), radiation pattern shaping to minimize the specific absorption rate (SAR) into the body, and changes in characteristics as a result of the user motions.

  • On-body skin confined propagation for Body Area Networks (BAN)

    The augmenting need for remote monitoring and treating patients by biophysical sensors interconnected via Body Area Networks (BAN) has recently called researchers' attention. The private and confidential transferred data in such application require high information security. One of the solutions is to use human body as a transmission channel. The body surface-confined transmission restricts the off-body detection, increasing the system security. Also, it reduces the interference between BAN users. For better understanding the body channel propagation mechanism, a lossy multilayered human body model, made of skin, fat, muscle tissues, is established for numeric analysis in this paper, using complex frequency dependent dielectric property for each tissue. Transverse Resonance Method is applied to calculate dispersion and attenuation in the propagation direction up to 60GHz. Since the tissue thickness varies with different localization and different person, 3 skin thicknesses, typically 0.5 mm, 1 mm, and 1.5 mm, are considered and compared.

The design and analysis of the proposed antenna with two modes that is on-body and off-body is accomplished by ANSYS HFSS Electromagnetic software. The on-body mode is obtained with the help of square-ring patch, whereas off body mode is achieved with slotted circular patch placed inside the square-ring patch. Both the patch antennas are independently fed, but share a common ground plane among them. Radiation pattern,_S_-parameter, radiation efficiency of the proposed antenna have been presented here. The antenna can be suitable for body area network applications in the industrial, scientific, and medical band(ISM).

  • Simplified human body models for interference analysis in the cognitive radio for medical body area networks

    The paper presents a simplified human body model which can be used for radio channel investigation in Body Area Networks (BAN). This simplified model can be applied to computer simulation in a wide range of frequencies that are required for the analysis of the Cognitive Radio systems. It can be also easily fabricated and used as a phantom in measurements of cognitive radio channel parameters. The proposed model was compared with a heterogeneous human body model. The results of computer simulation, which were obtained with the finite difference time domain method, are presented.

  • Frequency-Space-Polarization on UWB MIMO Performance for Body Area Network Applications

    This letter experimentally investigates the performance of ultrawideband (UWB) radio technologies with multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antennas for body area network (BAN) applications. Effects of array spacing, antenna polarization, bandwidth and propagation on UWB-MIMO channel capacity are analyzed. The key finding here is to that in BAN the MIMO channel capacity is mainly determined by the power imbalance between subchannels compared to the sub channel correlation for both spatial array and polar array. For spatial array, the measured results show that the MIMO channel capacity is decreased when the array spacing is increased, despite the spatial correlation coefficient is decreased. This phenomenon is different from that in wide area networks (WAN) and wireless local area networks (WLAN). It is because that power difference among elements of the spatial array is significant in BAN short-range communications compared to that in WAN and WLAN. For polar array, the achievable channel capacity is lower than that of the spatial array in line-of-sight (LOS) conditions due to high cross-polarization discrimination. Furthermore, the MIMO capacity is slightly dependent on the environments due to dominance of human body effect. It is also found that the MIMO channel capacity decreased with frequency or bandwidth.

  • Achieving energy efficiency in Body Area Networks (BAN's) through avoiding spatially correlated contention

    Energy Efficiency has been categorized as one of the major challenges for Body Area Networks (BAN) due to the limited power supply and expected long life of nodes and networks. This work proposes to reduce the energy consumption of BAN through monitoring and eliminating the spatial correlated contention in the BAN nodes. The issues of spatial correlation contention have been studied for traditional WSN's, but not in the BAN's. Since there could be cases in the BAN where multiple nodes make attempt to transmit the same data, the contention may take place resulting in the collisions and retransmissions. Avoiding this contention shall help prolonging the node and network lifetime. Two approaches have been proposed to solve the issue of correlation contention: only master transmitting the unique data and all the sensor nodes transmitting the unique data when compared with that of the neighbors. Simulations have been performed to observe the difference in energy consumption for both the proposed cases. It was found that the energy consumption for BAN comes out to be better when all the sensor nodes monitor the neighbor traffic and send the unique data only avoiding the redundant transmissions; hence the contention and collision reduces. The proposed approach can be integrated with any established MAC protocol for BAN in order to optimize the energy performance.
