Connected medical devices that prolong life and assist healthcare workers have incredible benefits, but also create life-threatening risks for patients. The technologies we have used to protect healthcare computers and networks for the past 20 years are not the right fit for the medical IoT revolution.
Atonomi helps secure healthcare IoT by enabling device manufacturers to build in blockchain-based immutable device identity and reputation tracking.
89% of healthcare organizations have suffered from IoT related security breaches, according to a Ponemon study. Atonomi provides trusted device identity and security of data as you move it between devices and to the blockchain.
Security is useless if it can’t fit onto your device. The Atonomi SDK is created for devices that measure their computing and storage resources in kilobytes—not megabytes or gigabytes.
Just download our Atonomi Embedded SDK, and give your device the blockchain-based security of the Atonomi trust environment.
The Atonomi trust environment is designed to work across all healthcare IoT devices, whether used for bed occupancy monitors, infusion pumps, electrocardiograms, glucose monitors, insulin delivery, respirators, blood pressure reporting, heart monitors, or a world of other uses. Atonomi can be deployed across all the spectrum of devices to ensure trust and security.
The market for smart medical devices is expected to reach $25 billion by 2025, according to Grandview Research. By that same year, Health Data Management estimates that 30% of the IoT will be deployed for healthcare. IoT security is already a top concern, and can be expected to only increase in decision making importance. Atonomi gives manufacturers the ability to provide marketplace differentiation by building security into all of their healthcare IoT devices.
A key element of the Atonomi trust environment is the precision coding of our Atonomi Embedded SDK. One reason that IoT devices have historically been either unsecured or poorly secured is that by necessity IoT devices are provisioned with limited computing and storage resources. Typical security solutions simply won’t fit.
With a footprint of less than 100 KB (just 60KB for most devices) the Atonomi Embedded SDK is a testament to the precision coding of our developers. With our long experience working within IoT, we know that to meet deployment demands IoT devices frequently are resource constrained—measuring memory and storage in kilobytes, not megabytes or gigabytes.

Immutable root identity, especially when linked with device reputation, enables interaction between known and trusted devices. Atonomi incorporates device identity using Elliptic Curve 25519 public/private key pairs created during either the device development or manufacturing process. The Atonomi embedded SDK uses the key pairs later during device registration with the Atonomi trust environment.
Device manufacturers register device IDs, including the device’s public key, with the Atonomi trust environment. The Atonomi smart contract includes a device registration function that writes new device IDs to the blockchain. The registered device ID, along with its public key, is later used during device activation.
When the IoT device is purchased by the end user, they receive activation instructions that send them to the Atonomi web portal where they will enter the device identifier for device activation onto the Atonomi trust environment. The Atonomi Embedded SDK, integrated into the application code by the developer or OEM, guides the end user through the activation process.
Devices that have been Atonomi-enabled via the Atonomi Embedded SDK and that have successfully registered and activated on the Atonomi trust environment can begin to utilize the Atonomi Validation functionality. Devices exchange their signed device identifier with other devices with which they want to transact. This enables secure device-to-device interactions.
The Atonomi Embedded SDK provides a device Reputation Service that relays quality of service data from interactions between devices on the Atonomi trust environment. The device reputation uses an algorithm to generate a behavioral score. Interactions are tracked by reputation auditors, and analyzed using AI and machine learning to detect aberrations signaling a compromised devices.
