The Internet is quickly evolving into a standard and widely used mode of information transfer. Therefore internet's information transfer capabilities could be exploited by Secure Telemedicine Applications to securely transfer medical information. However the current day internet protocol stack does not provide much in terms of security for the data being transferred across it. In this thesis we explore how Cryptography along with Smart Cards can be used to implement application layer protocols, to enhance the security of data flowing across the internet in a Secure Telemedicine environment. This thesis also discusses the design and implementation of various system software components required to implement such an application layer protocol.
