Wireless Infusion Pumps

Current Status

We are no longer accepting Letters of Interest from technology vendors for this project. Companies that have been selected to participate have signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA; see an example) with NIST. We are now in the build phase of our project lifecycle and are working on an SP 1800 draft. View our current draft architecture

The NCCoE, in collaboration with the Technological Leadership Institute at the University of Minnesota, initiated a project to improve the security of wireless medical infusion pumps. This is the first of a series of use cases focused on medical device security.

Read our two-page fact sheet, or download the revised project description for more detailed information on the technical scope of the project. 

Our original project description draft was published in December 2014, describing the project and asking for public feedback. We received more than 200 comments.
