In Chronological Order:


(Mar-May 19)  The U.S. Department of Homeland Security recently warned that numerous medical devices made by Medtronic are vulnerable to cyber attack. A solution to which is the EQS-HBC recently published by our group. IEEE Spectrum covered our work saying "Medtronic discloses medical device vulnerabilities, while Purdue University scientists propose countermeasure to block attacks".  IEEE Spectrum Article.
