Health Delivery Organizations, including the Military Health System, are increasingly using networked medical devices to benefit from improved information accuracy, lowered costs, and improved patient outcomes. These benefits, however, are threatened by the security risks posed by the interactions between the networked devices, and their connection to IT systems which are at risk of cyber attack. To address this, Adventium and KSU propose to develop tools and techniques to analyze the safety and security of networks of interoperating medical devices, which will allow both manufacturers and the Health Delivery Organizations to make risk-aware decisions about the medical devices and configurations of their networks. We will leverage active work on the ICE standard and KSU's proposed ICE-based MAP architecture that will allow organizations to design supervisory medical device applications that are customized to the needs of their operations, while ensuring the resulting System of Systems meets their safety and security requirements. SSCATE will advance the deployment of safe and secure networks of medical devices by enabling manufacturers to meet their shared responsibility for the intended use of their devices, reducing the regulatory challenge of integrated device approvals, and providing medical staff with the tools to help them configure ICE-compliant systems.
