The healthcare networks are gaining the popularity over the years and are being used in the many more applications. The healthcare surveillance in the hi-tech healthcare facilities, remote area health surveillance, telemedicine, etc has been used most popularly in these years. The healthcare models use the various kinds of the wireless body sensors, which are used for the healthcare monitoring in the healthcare networks. In this paper, the robust and secure authentication model has been proposed over the patient body sensor (PBS) based healthcare networks. The cloud-based healthcare networks have been aimed in this research for the inclusion of the proposed authentication model. The proposed model results have been obtained in the form of various performance parameters. The proposed model has been found efficient than the existing models when compared on the basis of the key connectivity and resilience to mobile adversaries in the networks.
