SSL Certificate & Certificate Management
HIPAA Security Standard §164.312 requires mechanisms to securely encrypt and decrypt electronic protected health information (or ePHI) when required. SSL, or “Secure Sockets Layer,” is the standard risk management means for ensuring the safe transmission of sensitive information. When this encryption is in place, a browser will show a padlock image before the https protocol in the status location bar. This is achieved through the use of strong cipher suites (the combination of authentication, encryption, and message authentication code algorithms), necessary to protect against security vulnerabilities. However, the costs of maintaining a complex, secure infrastructure for your sensitive information can be significant. SSL encryption requires an SSL certificate to be installed on your server, and more server resources are required to maintain performance of encrypted data.
