The aim of this research is to develop a Smart Healthcare Cyber Physical System (CPS) which allows to: a) enhance the responsiveness of implantable medical systems to health abnormalities; b) protect the patients from security threats and attacks from outsiders; c) provide a remote supervision of the patients’ health, and of the vital equipment that he/she wears; and d) forensically generate evidentiary data to promote the forensic investigation of healthcare attacks. In this paper, we define the CPS architecture together with the functions it implements. A mutual authentication protocol between the CPS and the remote physician is proposed. A technique for the investigation of healthcare attacks on that CPS using incident response cognitive maps is also described.
