Secure Messaging Industry Offer
In September 2018 changes were made to the Healthcare Identifiers (HI) Service to allow NASH PKI organisation certificates to be used to connect to the HI Service. All NASH PKI organisation certificates requested and downloaded via the Health Professional Online Services (HPOS) from the 18th of September 2018 can be used to connect to the HI Service and the My Health Record system.
NASH PKI Organisations SHA-1 Certificates will no longer be supported by DHS from March 2022. As such, all CIS Products must support SHA-2 Certificates for My Health Record, HI Service and Secure Messaging.
The purpose of this page is to outline the changes required in your software to enable these capabilities.
