DHS to take staged approach in move from PKI certificates to PRODA

The Department of Human Services will end the use of site and individual public key infrastructure (PKI) certificates for healthcare provider authentication by December 2020 in favour of the more secure Provider Digital Access (PRODA) system.

The announcement is part of the federal government's response to the independent review of health providers’ access to Medicare card numbers, which was sparked by the revelation that some numbers could be bought on the dark web.
