Protected eHealth Devices

Enabling the exchange of health data is a vital enabler of more efficient health care delivery. However, in addition to the clinical benefits, the proliferation of connected medical IoT devices come with security and privacy risks becoming more prevalent.

Poor management of these devices creates an expanding threat landscape which requires a robust security strategy in place that has the ability to identify, manage and reduce risks that are associated with the exchange of information across devices.

Cryptography plays a major role in the implementation of secure systems: confidentiality, integrity and authentication as PKI creates, distributes and verifies digital signatures in order to ensure that only authorized persons have access to information.

Utimaco assures device security and data privacy throughout the complete device life-cycle from manufacturing (key injection) through device operation (PKI) to end-of-operation (key termination).

Trusted Processes

Applications for Trusted Digital End-to-End Processes


Key Injection

The route to secure identity commences during the manufacturing process when components are enhanced through cryptographic key injection. Key injection gives every device an identity and need to be generated by an HSM.


Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)

eHealth devices are operated within PKI-Infrastructures, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, authenticity and non-repudiation of sensitive information. Encrypting data at rest and in transit guards it against theft or tampering, and guarantees that digital identity provides secure authentication of users and applications to protect against fraud.


Machine Identity Management & Security of IoT Components

Key injection – giving each component a unique electronic identity, increasing the authenticity of the device. With a unique ID, delivered by key injection, IT system administrators can track the device throughout its lifecycle, monitoring and revoking privileges, as required.
