This letter presents SecPump, a new open-source wireless infusion pump platform dedicated to security researchers. The novelty of the platform is that it is 'plug and play.' Indeed, SecPump simulates a functional infusion pump system on a single board without requiring additional hardware or mechanical components. The presented cyber-physical platform intends to provide a framework for security evaluation, tailored for countermeasure development against security flaws related to medical devices. This letter presents the functionality of the cyber-physical device, its wireless features, and its portability across several hardware architectures. Finally, both hardware and software attacks are showcased on the platform.
