In order to protect the privacy and confidentiality of individual medical information in telemedicine system, medical information should be encrypted. This can be realized by using a secure encryption scheme. Only a user who is given the decryption access right can decrypt and read the medical information. In this paper, we study two major types of telemedicine; store-and-forward and real-time. A PC-based prototype has been designed and developed to confirm a secure key-policy attribute-based encryption scheme (KP-ABE) for both store-and-forward and real time telemedicine.
