Resilience of medical devices under security attacks
Code Freeze 2023 - Breakout session
Cyber-physical devices that interact with the physical world need to tolerate cyber-attacks while maintaining their "essential performance." A bedside infusion pump, delivering critical drugs to a patient, should not stop delivering if a DDoS attack happens on the hospital network. This talk will speak to the requirements to maintain critical performance under attack and some of the techniques used to make this possible. While the focus will be on security of medical devices, it will be scaled to other critical infrastructures that need resilience to cyber-attack.
