As a result of the fast development of technology, healthcare systems have rapidly morphed into an all-pervasive environment that is replete with a variety of difficulties and possibilities. Threats and assaults with severe societal effects have been launched due to the increasing popularity of WBANs and their features and applications. The data is encrypted using a Ciphertext-Policy Attribute-Based Encryption algorithm and signed at the data sink in Secure and Efficient data transfer protocol, guaranteeing the data's safety at all times. The computational cost and complexity to solve this issue string are both raised by this technique. Security code that the public may access In WBAN, cryptography allows Kerberos-based authentication. Public-key cryptography can be used to secure the initial authentication procedure. The procedure's goal is to let the user safely send the required certificate (including the TGT and session key) to the sensor. The simulation results demonstrate that this approach improved the detection ratio, and minimized the false positive ratio compared to the baseline protocol in the network.
