In medical applications the wireless body sensor network makes it possible to track over any patient at any time, although in this area security plays an important role such that the unauthorized users can't access the data. Although the ECC is one of the more secure technique to encrypt the data. Hence the elliptic curve cryptographic techniques used to make the patient's data secure. . In this paper Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme (ECIES) is introduced which makes strong public key cryptographic system for the purpose of data encryption and decryption. Integrated Encryption Scheme is a public key encryption based on ECC. It is designed to be semantically secure in the presence of an adversary capable of launching chosen-plaintext and chosen ciphertext attacks. The ECIES provides a more secure way of encryption as compared to the existing security algorithms using MAC and hashing. In our scheme we can access multiple data reading from sensors and integrate them at the storage site.
