How to Secure Connected Medical Devices
A Public Key Infrastructure solution addresses challenges healthcare providers face, such as adhering to stringent privacy and data protection policies while mitigating risks for patients and guarding vulnerable connected devices from hacking. By authenticating devices, encrypting confidential data, and maintaining data and system integrity, PKI certificates provide healthcare IoT the three crucial components of online trust and security.
Certificates for devices validate identities to make sure only authorized users, messages, or other types of servers have access to the device.
A certificate creates an encrypted link and allows information to be transmitted privately.
Certificates make sure that any messages or data transferred to and from “things” are not altered.
Does PKI Work for Connected Medical Devices?
PKI is flexible and healthcare IoT doesn’t require traditional SSL certificates. Sometimes X.509 certificates are too heavy for smaller devices on the market. Luckily, digital certificates can be customized—with custom profiles, key usages, and fields—to match the needs and computational power of each medical device. And these certificates are competitively priced for issuance at IoT scale.
A PKI healthcare security solution can be implemented at any stage during the medical device lifecycle: product design, build, deployment, or the ongoing maintenance of the device.
