Researchers are designing a prototype pacemaker that could prevent a hacker from sending the implant a potentially fatal signal. The secure implant could detect unwanted signals and notify patients of security breaches. To advance the work, the National Science Foundation has awarded researchers at the University of Massachusetts (Amherst) a three-year grant to perfect the design of their secure implant technology.
