Abstract

Pacemakers are devices used to regulate heart rate in individuals with abnormal heart rhythms. Pacemakers are often paired with programmers that can receive data from and send commands to pacemakers. The goal of this research is to explore the feasibility of adding a biometric-based authentication layer to pacemaker-programmer communication. The usage of the fusion between Atrial Intracardiac Electrogram (Atrial EGM) and Right Ventricular Intracardiac Electrogram (RV EGM) signals is tested in an authentication scheme, achieving an accuracy rate of ~92%.
