April 11, 2012 -- This seminar will discuss different trade-offs when designing medical devices that must be connected to the IT network. Even though traditional devices can be connected through various aggregators available on the market, the IT departments recognize that the added layer within their network caused by a third-party aggregator adds complexity and expense to the implementation. This complexity also makes it more difficult to implement a consistent security policy that is straightforward to implement and validate.
Utilizing multicore and virtualization technology is one way to address the potential issues with security in support of medical devices. We talk about the differences between privacy and security, how many customers view security, and what a denial of service attack could mean to a single OS approach in a networked environment.
