IHE IT Infrastructure Technical Framework Supplements Published for Public Comment

This just crossed my desk. Most interesting to my usual followers is the "Document Encryption (DEN)" supplement. This includes a comprehensive analysis of all the use-cases around document encryption including existing solutions from IHE regarding transport and media encryption. It then fills the gaps with a standalone document content profile for transport independent document encryption; and updates XDM with a method for encrypting XDM content on USB and CDROM media.
