In recent years there has been a shift in the devices that people use to do their computing. Of particular import has been the movement in the computing landscape towards mobile devices. As would be expected, the proliferation of mobile devices has led to an increase in their being a target for malware. In addition to this change in the sphere of personal computing devices there has, at the same time, been a shift of server side computation moving towards the cloud. There has been another development worth noting, a dramatic increase in the number of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) being created along with an increase in individual’s usage of technology, including mobile devices, to access their EMR. Because of the importance of keeping medical records secure due to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and ethical concerns, security and limiting access are of the utmost importance. We implemented and tested a system herein to establish a connection between mobile devices and cloud services that is secure, usable and limits access to appropriate parties.
