Abstract

Medical implants are becoming more and more common in the daily life. The technological progress did also not stop at the medical area. While safety was always in focus within the implantable medical device ecosystem, security was less heavily weighted. This paper aims to give an overview about the current state of the implantable medical device ecosystem. This includes possible vulnerabilities, defense mechanisms as well as future prospects.
