Time: 5:00pm - 6:30pm
Venue: Edith Cowan University, 270 Joondalup Drive, Joondalup WA 6027
Room: Building 21, Level 2, Room 21.202
Details: Seminarpresentation from 5pm – 6pm, followed by light refreshments and networking from 6pm-6:30pm.
Implantable Medical Devices (IMDs), such as artificial pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs), neuro-stimulators, and implantable drug delivery systems, use embedded miniaturized computer systems to perform a variety of health monitoring and therapeutic functions automatically. However, the current use of wireless technologies for the IMDs could expose them to security attacks. Recent studies have demonstrated successful attacks on the IMDs and insulin pump devices in the laboratory. The experiment disclosed that the patient's privacy could be breached easily by intercepting transmitted data, including the patient's personal information, medical ID number, medical history, etc. Furthermore, active attacks can be launched to induce fibrillation or change therapies to the patient. In this presentation, I will discuss main security requires of the IMD systems, existing ideas and research challenges that we need to work on in the future.
