Considerations for implementing system that will record medical condition of participants on the battlefield always follow a path for best data gathering, data analyzing and fast implementation of medical procedures for saving lives. Smart I (eye) Advisory Rescue System (SIARS) has aim to process and transmit medical data of injured or wounded person which will allow saving more injured patients and lessen the death-rate on the battlefield. The dataflow in the system has a military significance during the military missions and communication security must be on an appropriate level. This paper presents review for communication and authentication security challenges in the process of SIARS development. The overarching goal for security issue about the system is to determine the factors that are influencing the secure communication and authentication between endpoints. Furthermore, the paper presents the best practices for achieving secure communication and authentication by using existing solutions. The focal points in this paper are security gaps in Bluetooth Smart communication with data collectors and security issues in VHF radio and 4G communications for data transport to database elements.
