InfoSec Conference Summary

Medical Cyber Physical Systems (MCPS) are life-critical, context-aware, and networked systems of medical devices that provide tight integration and coordination between the cyber world of computing and communications and the physical world. Recent advances in mobile and wearable healthcare, communication, and Cloud computing technologies are making MCPS a promising platform for scientific advancement and development of new tools that may improve patients’ health and wellbeing. Coming along with the potential social economic and personal healthcare benefits are significant security, privacy, and trustworthiness challenges in MCPS, due to unreliable embedded software controlling medical devices, weak computing and networking capabilities of medical devices, and adaptive privacy requirements introduced by complicated physiological dynamics of patient bodies. So far, the security, privacy, and trustworthiness initiatives for MCPS are still at an early stage. On one hand, more and more concerns have been raised in the fields and many security, privacy, and trustworthiness-enhancing techniques have been proposed to resolve these concerns. On the other hand, the emerging mobile and wearable technologies revolutionize the entire MCPS as well as its models of security, privacy, and trustworthiness. It is still not clear that these proposed techniques are useful and effective in practice and how quickly or even possibly they are going to be adopted.

This workshop aims to bring together the technologists and researchers who share interest in the area of security, privacy and trustworthiness in medical cyber physical systems, as well as explore new venues of collaboration. The main purpose is to promote discussions of research and relevant activities in the design of secure, privacy, or trustworthiness architectures, protocols, algorithms, services, and applications on medical cyber physical systems. It also aims at increasing the synergy between academic and industry professionals working in this area. We plan to seek papers that address theoretical, experimental research, and work in-progress for security, privacy and trustworthiness related issues in the context of medical cyber physical system. Topics include but not limit to:

  • Mobile Healthcare Security
  • Smartphone Security for Healthcare
  • Wearable Device Security
  • Medical Device Security
  • Security and Privacy on Implantable Medical Sensors
  • Biometrics
  • Wireless Communication Security
  • Security and Privacy for Wireless Body Area Networks
  • Secure RFID technology in MCPS
  • Security in Software Defined Networks (SDN))
  • Key Management
  • Cryptography for Health Systems
  • Security Management (administration and training) in Health Systems
  • Security in Virtualized Health Systems
  • Security Risk Assessment
  • Secure Cloud Health System
  • Big Health Data Security
  • Blockchair and its Application in Health Systems
  • Differential Privacy on Health Data
  • Secure Machine Learning on Health Data
  • Privacy Preserving Big Health Data Analysis
  • Novel Threats and Attack Models
  • Novel Trust Models
  • Security Detection and Evaluation
  • Security and Privacy Policies in Health Systems
  • Security in Electronic Health Record Systems
  • Access Control for Medical Systems
  • Secure Networking for Medical Systems
