OpenSSO is now part of the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) CONNECT Architecture. CONNECT implements a flexible, open-source gateway solution that enables healthcare entities – Federal agencies or private-sector health organizations or networks – to connect their existing health information systems to the NHIN.
As part of CONNECT, OpenSSO acts as the:
1) Authentication Service for citizen registration
2) Policy Enforcement Point
3) and one of two choices for a pluggable Policy Decision Point
