    Abstract

    Security is a major concern in the emergence of new digital ecosystems. We propose an initial metrics-driven framework to manage security in IoT (Internet of Things) E-Health applications. The framework enables informed self-care of chronic diseases such as diabetes, COPD and arthritis. The approach consists of security domain classification, security metrics use scenarios, modeling and visualization approaches, and monitoring and adaptive decision-making considerations. The underlying digital ecosystem considers a person with a chronic disease as a source of health data for his or her own treatment and other persons with similar conditions. In this type of ecosystems, the role of security effective solutions is important. Especially privacy is emphasized. Therefore, security solutions should be analyzed well in advance, even before specifying the new ecosystem.
