By default, Goodreader doesn’t require authentication or any warning to connect via Bonjour, and it allows you to browse AND DOWNLOAD any files that are so shared. Sitting in the Conference Center lobby, I was able to connect to two different iPads, view and grab files arbitrarilly, and push files TO the iPads as well.
Thinking about the implications of iPads that may contain cached sensitive medical information or documents with login or other data outside a secure hospital system (how many of us catch up on a little bit of work while at Starbucks?) setting freaks me out even more. What opportunities are there for medical librarians, hospital IT departments and med students/residents/clinicans to easily share what devices they are using and be aware of the latest security risks and how to resolve them?
