Internet of medical things (IoMT) is a fast-emerging technology in healthcare with a lot of scope for security vulnerabilities. Like any other internet connected device, IoMT is not immune to breaches. These breaches can not only affect the functionality of the device but also impact the security and privacy (S&P) of the data. The impact of these breaches can be devastating as well as life-threatening. The proposed methodology used a stakeholder-centric approach to Improve security of wearable IoMT devices. The proposed methodology firstly relied on a set of S&P attributes for wearable IoMTs that are identified to quantify security in these devices. Second, presented a method to quantify security in these devices. Finally, presented a case study to show how the proposed framework can be used to rank Wearable IoMTs in terms of S&P. This work aimed to (1) guide hesitant users when choosing a secure IoMT device, (2) encourage healthier competition among manufacturers of IoMT devices, and therefore, (3) improve the security of wearable IoMT devices.
