The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is pleased to announce the Secure API Server Showdown Challenge, which offers $50,000 in prizes and invites interested stakeholders to build a secure, FHIR server using current industry standards, best practices, and recently issued healthcare-specific implementation guide requirements.
Interested participants must register and submit their entry HERE.
The Department of Health and Humans Services Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) has selected Asymmetrik as the Stage 1 winner of the Secure API Server Showdown Challenge. They will deploy and maintain their FHIR server in a test environment provided by ONC throughout the duration of Stage 2’s Server Track and will be eligible to receive $10,000 at the conclusion of the Challenge. The goal of Stage 2 is to further harden the open source FHIR server by enabling dedicated testing of the security components by the participants.
Challenge Rules Clarification:
In order to qualify for a prize, the Stage 2 teams MUST find confirmed vulnerabilities in the FHIR server. Teams will not automatically place in the top 3 and qualify for a prize if no confirmed vulnerabilities are found by the Stage 2 participants.
