Abstract [en]

E-health systems are widely used in today’s world, and have a stillbrighter future with the rapid development of smart phones. A fewyears ago, e-health system could only be carried out on computers.But recently, people are using this as a phone application, so thatthey can get information at any time and anywhere. In addition,some smart phones can already measure heart rate and bloodpressure, for example, ‚Instant Heart Rate‛ and ‚Blood PressureMonitor‛. By using these kinds of applications, users can easilymeasure their health data and store them in their mobile phones.However, the problem of privacy has been attracting people’sattention. After uploading their data to the database, users do havethe right to protect their privacy. For instance, even the doctor hasthe authority to obtain the health record; the user's name can behidden, so that the doctor does not know who the owner of this datais. This problem also includes anonymization, pseudonymity,unlinkability, unobservability and many other aspects.In this thesis work, an android application is proposed to solve thisproblem. Users can set their own rules, and all data requests shouldbe dealt with by calling the rules. In addition, a module in the serveris to be developed to carry out the whole process of privacypreserving and the users’ data should be stored in the database.A standard for users to set rules is determined, which is bothdynamical and flexible. The application realizes some additional rulechecking functions to determine whether users have set a valid rule.Privacy rules can be created, deleted, or uploaded. In addition, userscan update their health record and upload it to the database. Theserver will call different protocols to deal with different requests, andthe data which obtains the requests is responded to by calling theusers’ own privacy rules.
