Wireless Medical Device Vulnerabilities: SCADA, Diabetes, and a ‘Theoretical Insulin Pump Attack’
This research paper is several years old now but might interest makers exploring wireless medical devices. The paper accompanied a Black Hat talk circa 2011 and is titled Hacking Medical Devices for Fun and Insulin: Breaking the Human SCADA System – the PDF is linked here.
A couple years later Jerome gave a follow-up talk to Black Hat USA that further contextualizes his research and endeavors:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
