Even though medical device manufacturers are heavily investing in the development of new medical device technologies, they often lack the security expertise and the technical resources to ensure that high levels of security are built into these solutions.
FREMONT, CA: Before diving into the problem of how to secure connected medical devices, it is essential to consider the origin of security vulnerabilities. Most embedded devices' vulnerability can be divided into vulnerabilities, deployment or use vulnerabilities, and design vulnerabilities.
Implementation of vulnerabilities occurs when coding errors result in a weakness that can be exploited during a cyberattack. The infamous, and seemingly immortal, buffer overflow attacks are the classic example of implementation vulnerabilities.
