Abstract: Nowadays, IT enabled service gain more attention due to easy to access resources from remote place. IT enabled services are extend their service to all kind of business and personal related applications like, e-commerce, e-business, e-transactions and e-healthcare etc.,. In India, e-healthcare system gains more attention in recent years due to its effectiveness. We have to consider information assurance is an important part of e-healthcare system, because maintaining of sensitive health records of individuals. Any information system is subject to two different issues, 1) information handling and 2) information assurance. An e-healthcare system has to provide necessary security factors without compromising information loss. Information access is one of the foremost issue for providing access rights to the legal users. In this paper, we have proposed a two factor authentication scheme using Elliptic Curve Cryptography with smart card. The proposed authentication is based on two-factor authentication with smart card and password, which provides high security with minimum computational cost. The proposed scheme generates new session key for every new session with fresh time stamp and nonce value. The proposed scheme needs minimum computation cost compared with the related authentication schemes using smart card

Category / Keywords: elliptic curve cryptosystem, smart cards, hash functions, anonymity
