Medical Device Security: Hijacking an Insulin Pump

In this talk, we present preliminary results of the publicly funded BSI project ManiMed - Manipulating Medical Devices. We focus on vulnerabilities discovered in an insulin pump that may cause serious harm to the patients as an insulin bolus can be administered by hijacking the pump. All vulnerabilities have been responsibly disclosed to the vendor and security advisories with corresponding fixes have been or will be published.

Please note that in alignment with our professional and ethical principles we are not going to disclose technically deep details of the vulnerabilities until a fix is rolled out by the manufacturer.
