Abstract

Today there are several health care related problems such as dementia and cancer with no possible cure. Hence there is considerable interest in the medical sectors and constant encouragement from the governments to make use of the latest technological advancements for supporting such patients. Software Defined Networking(SDN) is a promising technological advancement in the networking world. In this paper we propose techniques for making use of the SDN, Wireless LAN and wearable devices for secure monitoring of the patients with wandering behaviour in hospital environments. Our model makes use of the global network knowledge available at the SDN controller to deal with the attacks in WLAN and provide priority for real time location monitoring of the patients. We will also present the prototype implementation of our model using ONOS SDN controller and OpenFlow Access Points.
