Many 3D printers lack cybersecurity features, which presents opportunities to introduce defects as components are being built, a new study shows.
The study, performed by a team of cybersecurity and materials engineers at New York University, concluded that with the growth of cloud-based and decentralized 3D printer production supply chains, there can be "significant risk to the reliability of the product."
