How to Protect Patients Digital Images/Thermograms Stored on a Local Workstation

J. Živčák, M. Roško


To ensure the security and privacy of patient electronic medical information stored on local workstations in doctors’ offices, clinic centers, etc., it is necessary to implement a secure and reliable method for logging on and accessing this information. Biometrically-based identification technologies use measurable personal properties (physiological or behavioral) such as a fingerprint in order to identify or verify a person’s identity, and provide the foundation for highly secure personal identification, verification and/or authentication solutions. The use of biometric devices (fingerprint readers) is an easy and secure way to log on to the system. We have provided practical tests on HP notebooks that have the fingerprint reader integrated. Successful/failed logons have been monitored and analyzed, and calculations have been made. This paper presents the false rejection rates, false acceptance rates and failure to acquire rates.
