Security in Remote Update of Medical Devices
Name Xuejun Wu
Abstract As IoT becomes a significant element in many industries, the idea of smart-hospital is emerging. Securing medical devices deployed in health institutions requires regular updates of the medical device's configuration and software. It is essential to build a remote update system for medical devices to ensure the delivery of the updates. This thesis analyzes recent reports on the high-level threats and attacks that target IoT systems in health institutions to derive the security requirements that need to be considered in designing a remote update system for medical devices. Also, we list some remote update technologies that are used in other industries and analyze their extendability and compatibility with the security requirements in the healthcare sector.
