To ensure patients' privacy, such as telephone number, medical record number, health information, etc., authentication schemes for telecare medicine information systems (TMIS) have been studied widely. Recently, Wei et al. proposed an efficient authentication scheme for TMIS. They claimed their scheme could resist various attacks. However, in this paper, we will show their scheme is vulnerable to an off-line password guessing attack when user's smart card is lost. To improve the security, we propose a new authentication scheme for TMIS. The analysis shows our scheme could overcome the weaknesses in Wei et al.'s scheme and has better performance than their scheme.
