Building Code for Medical Device Software Security Released

IEEE released a report titled "Building Code for Medical Device Software Security" with the aim to start builders of software for medical devices down the road toward a 'building code' for software security that will reduce the vulnerability of their systems to malicious attacks, just as codes for physical buildings help their designers and builders create structures that resist threats from fire, wind, water and, in some cases, malicious attacks. The report is the result of an invitational workshop where Adventium Labs researchers played a key role. Adventium's Tom Haigh (ret.) was the workshop's vice chair and report co-author (with Carl Landwehr of George Washington University) and Ken Hoyme was on the organizing committee.
