Abstract

The medical information of the patients is private and extremely sensitive because the information is confidential, That way It have been stored and transmitted carefully because the information is exposed a series of threats that approach these technologies and it is necessary to protect it in a sure way. This study contemplates the investigation about the existing and best practical information technologies security to design a security mechanisms pilot of telemedicine network that allow to guarantee the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the medical information of the patients of the hospitable centers involved.
