Cybersecurity and Open Source

The purpose of this group is to develop a response to a series of questions on Cybersecurity posed to the open source community by Dr. Paul Tibbits of VA.  The questions are:

  • Does the open source community have a focus on cybersecurity?
  • Are projects to enhance cybersecurity proposed to OSEHRA by the open source community? If so, have any been completed?
  • Are there lessons learned from Red Hat/LINUX WRT cybersecurity that might be applicable to health IT?
  • What is the relationship of OSEHRA certification to cybersecurity?

The plan is to submit the community response to Dr. Tibbits by Wednesday 13th of April.  There will be a weekly Wednesday call at 1 PM EDT to discuss the draft response.  The Webex call info is as follows:

One thing that I think we...

One thing that I think we need to make sure that we focus on is the emphasis of cybersecurity within the realm of VistA to include M, current OpenSource Solutions and what OpenSources plans to do for Cloud based solutions. The super ironic thing about this conversation is that I asked similar question when the VA and OSEHRA began working together years ago.
