Public Key Infrastructure: A Trusted Security Solution for Connected Medical Devices

DigiCert

Learn Why this Scalable Solution Works

Thousands of medical devices in use today are vulnerable to hacking. Hospitals, outpatient centers, healthcare practices, and even patients in their homes use high-tech equipment every day to monitor care, improve patient outcomes, and save lives. However, studies show that connected devices (and data within) are at risk for exploitation without proper authentication and encryption.

This white paper, authored by Mike Nelson, VP of Healthcare at DigiCert, and Dr. Dale Nordenberg, MDISS Executive Director, addresses the inherent risks associated with unsecured connected devices. Nelson and Nordenberg discuss challenges organizations should consider before using an internal CA. They also cover a variety of use cases and explain why PKI is the ideal security solution for the growing number of Internet-connected devices in the medical industry and beyond.
