    This study presents primary security concerns for remote intelligent Pharmacy-on-a-Chip (PoC) delivery systems. With recent advances in remote intelligent drug delivery, security threats associated with these systems need to be addressed. This paper examines some possible security threats in Remote Intelligent Drug Delivery Systems (RIDDS) and proposes counter measures. It is proposed that security research in sensor network security can be applied to RIDDS. We raise security concerns in relation to RIDDS, especially in the context of medical sensor networks, because, among other reasons, a failure to do so could risk the privacy and possibly the life of a patient.
