Cryptographic Key Management: How To Secure Implantable Medical Devices

This article provides guidance on where to start and primary considerations when designing your cryptographic key management system for an implantable medical device. Keep in mind that the scope of this article will be focused on the implant itself, so that we will discuss microcontroller (MCU) and firmware flavors of key management rather than mobile or cloud-flavored key management. Introduction The Internet of Things (IoT) is…
