Security of Health Information Databases

Mart Simisker
Secure storage of sensitive data is a strong requirement in current times. Depending on the scenario it could prove more difficult than first expected. Data security on the database side is often overlooked or underestimated. Application side encryption can be used to avoid many of the common issues. In the thesis we aim to give an implementation of one scheme for secure data gathering and storage. The implementation consists of three applications to display the process of gathering data. We also attempt to integrate two low budget Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) into our scheme. The thesis shows the difficulties with the hope, that the process could be improved. The given example can be used to add specialised sensitive data collection methods to existing data management software.
