This seminar will discuss different tradeoffs
when designing medical devices that must be connected to the IT network. Over
the years, devices have been connected sparingly to the IT network and the
requirement of such a connection varied from customer to customer. Today, there
is a hard requirement to get the data from the device into an EMR. Even though
traditional devices can be connected through various aggregators available on
the market, the IT departments recognize that the added layer within their
network caused by a third party aggregator adds complexity and expense to the
implementation. This complexity also makes it more difficult to implement a
consistent security policy that is straightforward to implement and validate.

Utilizing multicore and Virtualization Technology is one way to address the
potential issues with security in support of medical devices. We will talk about
the differences between privacy and security, how many customers view security,
and what a denial of service attack could mean to a single OS approach in a
networked environment.
