The SIREN project was established by the Health Telematics Programme of the European Commission to assist health care provider groups using regional health care networks to establish necessary security services. The project has collected experiences from major regional health care networks throughout Europe with regard to security problems. Using these experiences and security expertise, particularly from the TrustHealth project of the programme, SIREN is disseminating information on good examples of solutions to the user groups. The first chapter provides an introduction to the problem area of securing communication in large health telematics networks. Chapter 2 describes the challenges with regard to legal requirements on digital data, particularly with regard to issues of proving authenticity. Chapter 3 provides an overview of typical healthcare applications and highlights some of the different security requirements posed. The major part of this booklet provides reports from security analyses and selected solutions from a number of different environments, mainly taken from European projects with participants from many different countries.
