Enabling the exchange of health data is a vital enabler of more efficient health care delivery. However, in addition to the clinical benefits, the proliferation of connected medical IoT devices come with security and privacy risks becoming more prevalent.
Poor management of these devices creates an expanding threat landscape which requires a robust security strategy in place that has the ability to identify, manage and reduce risks that are associated with the exchange of information across devices.
Cryptography plays a major role in the implementation of secure systems: confidentiality, integrity and authentication as PKI creates, distributes and verifies digital signatures in order to ensure that only authorised persons have access to information.
Utimaco assures device security and data privacy throughout the complete device life-cycle from manufacturing (key injection) through device operation (PKI) to end-of-operation (key termination).
