IMDShield: Securing Implantable Medical Devices

IMDShield explores the feasibility of protecting IMDs without modifying them by implementing security mechanisms entirely on an external device. Such an approach enhances the security of IMDs for patients who already have them, empowers medical personnel to access a protected IMD by removing the external device or powering it off, and does not in itself increase the risk of IMD recalls.
