Abstract: This paper presents the design and implementation of Personal Health Records and providing security to them while they are stored at third party such as cloud. Personal Health Record is web based application that allows people to access and co-ordinate their lifelong health information. The patient have control over access to their own PHR. To achieve security of personal health records we use the attribute based encryption to encrypt the data before outsourcing it. Here we focus on multiple types of PHR owner scenario and division of personal health records users into multiple security domains which reduce key management complexity for owners and users. A high degree of patient’s privacy is guaranteed. Our scheme gives personal health record owner full control of his/her data. Extensive security and performance analysis shows that the proposed scheme is highly efficient.
