Cyber-Security for Assisted Living

Assisted Living exploits networking and personal medical devices to enable remote monitoring of vital signs of people in their homes. Such monitoring raises concerns for security and privacy, which must meet standards appropriate to communication of data that is both safety-critical and personally sensitive. This project developed architectures, prototypes, and formal analysis for an Assisted Living Service Provider (ALSP) and a Medical Mediator.
