  • John Chaired
  • Minutes approved: Kathleen Connor / Nathan Botts: unanimous
  • Announcements given
  • Note previous new items have a dedicated thread in the Zulip Security and Privacy stream
  • Focus on ONC white paper
  • Motion: JC/KC - Where secure http communications are needed, include TLS 1.2 or higher as best-practice in the specification, and consider it as a candidate for being a requirement.
    • Modify first sentence of second paragraph: "TLS 1.2 or higher SHOULD be used for all production data exchange, and disable support for lower versions of TLS."
    • post-paragraph add : "When using TLS use with strong cipher suites (e.g, AES)."
    • References: SMART-on-FHIR, NIST SP 800-52, IETF RFC xxxx on HTTP ......
    • Action: Matt will provide references used in Sequoia
  • New Work
    • Input Validation
      • ACTION: John - find in current spec on Input Validation to see if it captures Security need. If so, then add pointer to it from security, if not then we need to build text
      • ONC: Ensure that API cannot be manipulated to unintentionally expose health information or system vulnerability information.
      • Add to top level security punch list: " Disable any messages that may have been used for debugging or error trapping purposes in a development environment to limit the exposure of information that may make an EHR vulnerable to attack."
    • Continuous security testing and remediation
      • Using off-the-shelf and open-source tools to simulate attacks, code inspection, and in other ways probe for vulnerabilities, and remediation of those vulnerabilities following Risk-Management methodology.
