System-Level Security for IoT-enabled e-Health Systems

The evolution of e-health systems with increased connectivity through the advancement of the Internet of Things (IoT) has exposed them to a new frontier of cybersecurity vulnerabilities from which they were previously shielded. Healthcare providers today depend on nearly 100 million connected medical devices to deliver cost-effective and lifesaving treatment to patients, and the number of these connected devices is expected to double in the next 2-3 years. The primary goal of this work is to develop a comprehensive system-level security platform, capable of guaranteeing acceptable levels of security, privacy, and trust in a heterogeneous IoT-enabled e-health system. We aim to develop a system-level security management platform that can help to identify vulnerabilities in a heterogeneous e-health system and inform the development of suitable security mechanisms and protocols.
