Abstract

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) is feedback systems that are a concoction of closely integrated physical processes, communication and computation which interacts with the human through various modalities. It is developed as the censorious infrastructure in the different implementing platform and has the perspective to influence our day to day life. The applications of these systems vary from the power grid, communication, and transportation to health care and many more. There is an exponential growth of Medical Cyber-Physical Systems (MCPS). In MCPS, the cyber aspects are embodied in the analyzing computer and the communications to the Internet. Moreover, the cyber-physical countenance interacts directly with the patients. The patient represents the physical perspective with regards to therapeutic devices. CPS has an impact on different aspects of the medical system. However, it has a plethora of security challenges in this field of application. Various threats and attacks have been newly introduced for MCPS. Security becomes a top concern for MCPS. Progress in technology has made it important to develop a new proposition for security. In this chapter, we present a security analysis of Medical Cyber-Physical System and provide a layer to layer solution to the security issues and recapitulate the security issues of MCPS from independent perspectives.
