In the FHIR Authenticate Node transaction, the local Node (Web Site) presents its Identifier to a remote Secure Node, and authenticates the Identifier of the remote node (another Web Site).


The context of an FHIR interaction is the transfer of PHI although other transaction could occur of the interchange so established.



  • After mutual authentication,other FHIR secure transactions may take place through this secure pipe between the two nodes.
  • In addition, the Secure Node authenticates the Identifier of the Subject who requests access to the node. This user authentication is a local operation that does not involve communication with a remote node. Note that the Subject could be a secure location or a machine as well as a User.
