Short Description: The objective of the TrustHealth 1 project was the specification and feasibility study (small-scale implementation) of a European security infrastructure in health, which was based on Health Professional Cards (HPC) and Trusted Third Party (TTP) services.
Beside the specification of the card environment including the card file system, interfaces to security services and applications as well as the services, mechanisms and algorithms used, also the specification of security policies and TTP architecture, services, and implementation was taken into account.
The TrustHealth 1 project has collaborated with several other projects funded by the European Commission such as NETLINK and DIABCARD. It provided input into national projects for implementing a security infrastructure in health as well as for standardisation efforts.
