A number of recent reports have highlighted the potential vulnerability of medical implants to hacker attack. It is undoubtedly possible to produce radio linked devices for many applications that are vulnerable to attack and vulnerability tends to increase for battery powered devices because some cryptographic and authentication functions use significant energy.
A growing theme in innovative product developments of the last decade is exploiting the benefits of connection. The public has shown time and again that it values the convenience of connection very highly. But there is a sometimes implicit trade-off. For instance, the rise of internet banking has been a gold mine for organised crime. The […]
