Security Benchmarks for Wearable Medical Things: Stakeholders-Centric Approach


Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is a fast-emerging technology in healthcare with a lot of scope for security vulnerabilities. Like any other Internet-connected device, IoMT is not immune to breaches. These breaches can not only affect the functionality of the device but also impact the security and privacy (S&P) of the data. The impact of these breaches can be life-threatening. The proposed methodology used a stakeholder-centric approach to improve the security of IoMT wearables. The proposed methodology relies on a set of S&P attributes for IoMT wearables that are identified to quantify S&P in these devices. This work aimed to (1) Guide hesitant users when choosing a secure IoMT wearable device, (2) Encourage healthier competition among manufacturers of IoMT wearables, and therefore, (3) Improve the S&P of IoMT wearables.
