WGM Minutes approved 2020-05-26 Security WG Agenda/Minutes
Q3 (1:30 - 3:00 PM ET)
Security Joint with Biomedical Research and Regulation (BR&B) - Research Provenance Use Cases, collaboration
Kathleen presented background about PSAF Provenance DAM based on W3C PROV and IVOA.
She referred the group to Relationship of PSAF Provenance with Other Provenance Standards and Profiles for more detail.
Now working with implementers looking for real research use cases to test.
VA and health system vendors had prepped a Provenance demonstration for HIMSS.
The planned vignette involved the Million Veteran Program research project.
Looking for another opportunity to demonstrate research provenance.
Security WG is interested in collaborating with BR&R on use cases and development of a FHIR Research Provenance profile.
Possibly a Connectathon Provenance Track to test a FHIR Research Provenance profile being exchanged via a Federated Provenance Server with perhaps a blockchain component.
Possible research use cases discussed:
Peter Bromberg has been emphasizing the importance of tracking status changes wrt 5 Ws (who, what, where, when, and why).
Craig Andersen - Canadian product labeling use case for chaining provenance of product label version changes.
Matt Natter Boston's Children's Hospital FDA Patient Reported Outcomes [PRO] provenance from clinical trials - whether the patient or someone on behalf of the patient - using audit log to check the hash of sender signature
Other FDA participants - Mark Gray, Norman Gregory
John Moehrke joined to discuss possible research provenance profile that could be tested at Connectathon.
Topic will be followed up at FHIR Security.

No more international reports, no liaison reports at all because of lack of people.
No motions, no decisions.

|FHIR DS4P IG Ballot Outcome|
Quorum met - 107 voters, FHIR DS4P IG Ballot Passed
Negatives - missing definitions, which is the result of tooling errors we need to fix, and a general misunderstanding that the FHIR DS4P IG is the basis for profiles for policy specific security label IGs much like the CDA DS4P IG is. Only the profiles are implementable.
Sept NIB by July 5 per Security WG Admin

Brett Marquard - Request that Security co-sponsor
|Deferred until 2020-05-26 Security WG Agenda/Minutes|
|Security and Privacy Information Model (S&P DAM REFRESH)|
Review and seek approval of the HL7 Privacy and Security Information Model PSS
Information model update: The new information model will consolidate and harmonize security models across HL7 standards (Access Control, Audit, TF4FA etc.) and (incomplete) updates from FHIM (Consolidated unresolved models). Also included are direct mappings to Access Control, Audit and Authentication (e.g. Class models) mapped to Access Control services.
Security WG approval June 5, 2020
ISD approval - by July
TSC before August 23, 2020
Motion to Approve HL7 Privacy and Security Information Model PSS
Vote - Approve/Abstain/Oppose: #- 0 - 0
WG decided that PSS needs revisions shown below
1a. Project Name
HL7 Privacy and Security Information Model PSS
1b. Project ID

1f. Name of standard being reaffirmed
1g. Project Artifact Information
1h. ISO/IEC Standard to Adopt

3a. Project Scope
Develop and publish up-to-date Security and Privacy Information Model NEED to define Information Model. Can't just reference v3 DMIMs as those are specific to a particular syntax, which uses v3 RIM classes, attributes, datatypes, and semantics (vocabulary) - absolutely not applicable in a conceptual model. Need to clearly make Behavioral Model out of scope since the DAM and PSAF include behavioral models.
3b. Project Need
Current Wording: The current HL7 Security Information models is out of date (dates back to 2014). Since that time significant changes to class relationships including new relationships and need to connect more holistically to modern HL7 standards have emerged.
The current HL7 Composite Security and Privacy Domain Analysis Model information models is out of date (dates back to were completed in 2014). Since that time significant changes to class relationships including new relationships to other Security models have been developed such as Security Labeling, Audit, Trust and Provenance. These models need to connect more holistically in an updated, overarching conceptual model.
[KC - No changes have been made to the DAM models in TF4FA - mostly because BB raised a fuss whenever the TF4FA strayed from ISO 22600 S&P DAM models have NOT been deprecated or overridden by PSAF - so best to characterize this as an enhancement.]
