Direct Federal Community
To put this page in context, please reference the Direct Communities page.
Members of the Federal community are able to exchange messages with Federal entities. The policies for this community will be those endorsed by ONC through the HIT Policy Committee and the associated Privacy and Security Tiger Team.
The S&I Framework Certificate Interoperability initiative, in conjunction with the Certificate Authority Taskforce under the HIT Policy Committee Privacy and Security Tiger Team, has developed an analysis of the issues related to complying with digital certificate requirements for exchanging data with Federal agencies. Specifically this is focused on the requirement that all certificates used to communicate with Federal entities must be issued by a CA that is cross-certified with the Federal Bridge CA.
No proposed policy has been published or discussed.
The Federal Bridge CA certificate policy describes audit and oversight requirements for HIDPs.
