Working together...
Charles.Desassure   8/21/2013 11:56:20 PM
Thanks for your interesting article.  There are many medical devices that need to be revisited over the next few years and have preventive protection as it pertains to data security or security in general.  Remember, technology is everywhere.  Technology is used with printers? Watches? The list goes on and on.  So engineers and medical professionals need to work together and come up with  medical designs to address security.

I look forward to hearing more about what exactly you do --and think --as an MD and EE.

Also, I heard there were session planned at Black Hat on hacking a pacemaker.

hacking implants

You wrote in you blog:

The balance between privacy and security is critical, but the question remains of how much security is enough?

This is fascinating. The very question you posed here seems to be a running theme today for every electronic product (including cars) we deal with. I very much look forward to your next blog!

Its just a matter of time

Its just a matter of time, that somebody hack into any connected/progammable implants. Several cheap softwar tools available today can easily crack 128/256 bit AES encryption.   


The impact of security on battery life is obvious. Add more encryption-> burn more power. Several people are working on ultra low power/ sub threshold encryption hardware to mitigate this.


BTW the bio of the Author is interesting :)
