Security for the Internet of Medical Things

SIOMediC is a project of INSA Centre Val de Loire and Université d’Orléans, funded by Région Centre Val de Loire.

Digital health and in particular Connected Medical Devices (CMD) are experiencing rapid growth. Unfortunately, the numerous and recurring vulnerabilities of these devices present major confidentiality problems for medical data and significant dangers for the physical integrity of individuals. Our work aims to make DMCs safer (free from software bugs) and more secure (resistant to external attacks). We want to propose new protocols for interconnecting DMCs in their environment (hospital or domestic) and access control models, adapted to these different uses (often wireless). The goal is then to protect the DMCs from external attacks. We also want to be able to provide guarantees that neither the codes (programs) embedded on the DMCs, nor the protocols and protection mechanisms that we add to them, present any vulnerabilities. The main deliverables will be reusable software components.
