IP Splicing / Hijacking

Definition:
An action whereby an active, established, session is intercepted and co-opted by the unauthorized user.

IP splicing attacks may occur after an authentication has been made, permitting the attacker to assume the role of an already authorized user.

Primary protections against IP splicing rely on encryption at the session or network layer.

#HIMSS: ANOTHER EVENT - MORE PROMISES

| No Comments

I feel like I'm stuck on writing about events - and most times it seems like déjà vu all over again!  I just finished talking about Mobile World Congress and now, another.

Really, I'm not addicted to these shows but rather intrigued at how many events take place, especially in the beginning of the year.   It's almost like a frat party - you come to mine and I'll come to yours, and we'll talk about the same things, make the same promises, yada, yada, yada.

So what is supposed to be the crème of health care shows takes place next week in Orlando.  The #HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition is expected to host nearly 30,000 attendees, with more than 900 exhibitors.  The conference, as with others, also offers educational sessions for attendees - some 400+ at this year's event.

And how appropriate that the show is in Orlando -- companies and people talking about the future of health care, where else, in fantasy land!  Every company exhibiting will have their big toys on hand to put their positive spin on how technology can truly reform the health care system.  I don't doubt that their solutions can and will work to drive down costs and enhance the quality of health care, but again, it's deploying and executing those solutions and educating all involved for adoption and mainstream use to take place.

It sounds like the educational sessions might actually be geared toward doing just that - educating.  Teaching those in the health care industry is a good start.  From the research I've read, I hope there are some doctors in attendance, as they are cited as the ones that need the most training, followed by nurses and then administrative staff.

Also, the conference is supposed to offer real-world success stories of using health care technology.  I find that having first hand examples of how someone is using something new, and actually gaining benefits, is the best way to educate people.  No demo, the real thing.

All that said though, I expect there to be demonstrations galore without the real life use examples.  In one of the benefits of attending the show I think I read something like, "health IT that could bring the greatest value to the greater health care community."  Could?  Let's be a bit more positive on this one team and say "can" or "will" if you're really convinced this stuff will work.  It's not like you're offering a diagnosis where you have to be sure to let patients know all the alternatives.  Guess this is what happens when you have medical folks running a conference.

Next show up is the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA) event - again in Orlando.  I'm sure they'll have a medical component also, but geared more toward #mHealth, making some of the products at #HIMSS mobile.

But I promise to make that the last event I talk about this year - unless something really groundbreaking happens.

Have a safe and healthy week
