In recent times, cyberattacks on Internet of Health Things (IoHT) have continuously been growing, and so it is important to develop robust countermeasures. However, there is a lack of publicly available datasets reflecting cyberattacks on IoHT, mainly due to privacy concerns. To strengthen the cyber security of IoHT, we have developed the dataset, named ECU-IoHT, that is built upon an IoHT environment having different attacks performed that exploit various vulnerabilities. This dataset was designed to help the healthcare security community in analyzing attack behaviour and developing robust countermeasures. To the best of our knowledge, no other publicly available datasets have been released for cybersecurity in this domain.
Research Activity Title
An investigation of vulnerabilities in Internet of Medical Things (IoHT) and development of benchmark dataset
Research Activity Description
Due to the excessive usage of networked medical devices, cyber criminals take greater interests in hacking the healthcare ecosystem. In this project, an IoHT testbed will be setup and vulnerabilities will be investigated to develop a realistic dataset. Currently, there are a shortage of datasets reflecting cyber vulnerabilities in healthcare domain. Therefore, the expected project outcome is to create a dataset reflecting different cyber attacks in IoHT.
