Wearable embedded devices are in common use in the the medical industry. In today’s society security is needed in just about every electronic device. However, these devices don't yet have many security standards. To prevent scenarios that involve unauthorized sources intruding on a device, a honeypot could be used as a secure lightweight (in terms of resource usage) addition to these medical devices. Honeypots typically have a monitoring component, this allows a system designer to gain knowledge of exploits which can then be patched. This project seeks to devise and implement a wearable honeypot to add security to a BAN (Body Area Network).
