Winner Announcement:

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.

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.
