In this paper, we investigate the implications of the General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) on the design of an IoT healthcare system. From 26th May 2018, the GDPR will become mandatory within the European Union and hence also for any supplier of IT products. Breaches of the regulation will be fined with penalties of 20 Million EUR. This is a strong motivation for system designers to enable the proof of compliance to the GDPR. We propose the use of formal modeling and analysis using interactive theorem proving. Based on previous work on modeling infrastructures and security policies for insider attacks, we demonstrate the use of logical modeling and machine assisted verification to support data protection (privacy) by design. We illustrate this process on the case study of IoT based monitoring of Alzheimer’s patients that we work on in the CHIST-ERA project SUCCESS.
