AB A key issue in electronic health systems is the underlying security and privacy risk. For example, confidential patient information or medical records ending up in the hands of a person not privy to the information could have far-reaching consequences. With the trend toward cloud computing use in the healthcare industry continuing to grow (for example, using cloud platforms to digitally manage health-related data including electronic health records), security and privacy concerns must be adequately addressed, and regulations on data protections made to be in compliance. This column examines several key issues and requirements underpinning the use of cloud computing for managing healthcare-related data as well as potential solutions.

AB Internet of Things (IoT) devices deliver significant benefits for storing sensing data that could be used intelligently for multiple purposes. A major concern in enhanced living environments (ELEs) is the efficient daily use of sensors in the collection, monitoring, and storing of data to improve users' quality of life. In this article, the authors present an IoT cloud architecture that allows connection of users, their devices, and the cloud system in a modular way by separating modalities into different cloud services that are deployed independently. They focus on the e-health domain and present a use case of patient monitoring using motion-sensing devices. Their architecture provides significant benefits, including reduced costs and real-time data monitoring aiming to improve the patient experience. In rehabilitation environments, the system allows proactive treatment, real-time prevention with continuous monitoring of users, and improvement of the overall treatment process by allowing caregivers access to real-time user information.

AB The rapid advances of information, computing, and communication technologies have led to significant enhancements to human living environments. Enhanced living environments (ELEs) encompass the coupling of information technologies (cyber), intelligent devices (physical), and human society (social) for enhanced quality of life. Together, these spaces are referred to as cyber-physical-social systems (CPSSs). For CPSSs to provide high-quality services, improved service frameworks are needed. The framework presented in this article includes a sensing plane, cloud plane, and application plane. In the sensing plane, the relationship of objects in every local CPSS is represented by a local tensor, which is cleaned and uploaded to the cloud plane. In the cloud plane, a global tensor is constructed by integrating all local tensors together. Next, the application plane provides the corresponding high-quality services. A case study using a typical CPSS smart home illustrates a simple application of the proposed service framework.

AB It is critical to provide enhanced living environments (ELEs) to people with special needs (such as the elderly and individuals with disabilities) that offer 24/7 continuous monitoring and control of the environment and access to care services when needed. Recently, there has been a strong interest in building ELEs using implantable and wearable sensors, and wireless sensor networks that are supported by cloud computing. However, ELE technologies and information are vulnerable to cyberattacks and exploitations that can lead to life-threatening scenarios such as incorrect medical diagnoses. This article presents a platform that offers secure and resilient services for ELEs. The main components of the platform are the ELE end nodes, secure gateway, and a secure and resilient cloud computing system. End nodes collect ELE variables and human body signals that are stored securely in the cloud using a secure gateway. The secure gateway manages communication between the end nodes and the cloud services using biocyber metrics for authentication. In addition, the cloud architecture provides the required ELE services at any time and from anywhere in a resilient manner.

AB Ubiquitous computing paradigms, empowered by the fifth-generation networking and emerging smart ambient intelligence environments, could play a crucial role in creating better living environments for activity-challenged individuals, such as disabled or elderly people requiring constant care. Cloud computing has been an empowering force for this endeavor, although it raises several ethical, security, and user experience issues. This article presents a virtualized fog-based infrastructure for harvesting and managing distributed IT resources, shifting the entire cloud functionality to the network edge, and utilizing the cloud in an assistive manner to ensure system robustness. The infrastructure facilitates an ambient assisted-living emergency system that alerts nearby authorities when the target user leaves the identified home boundaries. It uses an outdoor positioning mechanism and emergency and Internet of Things communication protocols.

AB The cloud model is rapidly evolving, with maturing intercloud architectures and progressive integration of sparse, geodistributed resources into large datacenters. The single-provider administrative barrier is also increasingly crossed by applications, allowing new verticals to benefit from the multicloud model. For instance, in home healthcare systems, transparent usage of resources from multiple providers enables "follow-me" scenarios, where healthcare services are accessible anywhere, anytime, with quality-of-service (QoS) guarantees. However, transparency might be at odds with security and jurisdictions, imposing restrictions on where data and applications might be stored and run. Existing intercloud approaches either disrupt application deployment mechanisms or compromise infrastructure homogeneity, making enforcing a uniform QoS level more complex, notably for protection. This article introduces Orchestration for beyond Intercloud Security (Orbits), an infrastructure-as-a-service-level architecture that enables flexible and legacy intercloud application deployment for mobile remote healing, while providing a homogeneous service abstraction across multiple clouds. The authors also present a work-in-progress prototype and several benchmarks to demonstrate the viability of the approach and highlight key implementation choices.

AB Osmotic computing is a new paradigm to support the efficient execution of Internet of Things (IoT) services and applications at the network edge. This paradigm is founded on the need for a holistic distributed system abstraction enabling the deployment of lightweight microservices on resource-constrained IoT platforms at the network edge, coupled with more complex microservices running on large-scale datacenters. This paradigm is driven by the significant increase in resource capacity/capability at the network edge, along with support for data transfer protocols that enable such resources to interact more seamlessly with datacenter-based services. This installment of "Blue Skies" discusses osmotic computing features, challenges, and future directions.
