Install Certificates

A change is coming! 
As you are probably aware, in 2021 Carequality and eHealth Exchange will be migrating to a new Certificate Authority and Certificate issuance process that will better serve our Implementers/Participants. We have partnered with DirectTrust and its accredited Certificate Authorities to offer our community self-service identity assurance and certificate management capabilities. Each Carequality Implementer or eHealth Exchange Participant, and their current Entrust Certificate, will transition to one of the participating Certificate Authorities at some point during 2021. These Certificates will be issued in accordance with DirectTrust Certificate Policies to profiles developed in collaboration with Carequality/eHealth Exchange for use exclusively within our community. 
Self-service capabilities will include: 
Validating your organization and identity proofing the authorized sponsor
Creating and uploading a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) 
Downloading a Certificate
Renewal and Revocation of your Certificate
What to Expect
All support will be provided by a single help desk function from DirectTrust. They will facilitate all issues related to obtaining, downloading, and/or installing the Certificates. While the process for securing these certificates will vary slightly from what you’ve grown accustomed to, our goal is to offer excellent service to the community, while maintaining the highest level of security. We believe you will find the process to be more automated and streamlined for your convenience. 
Timing
During the months of February and March 2021, we will be working with a small group of Pilot Implementers/Participants to test the self-service procedures/automation and certificate issuance process. Starting April 1 2021 as certificates expire, Organizations/Implementers/Participants will migrate to the new certificate issuance process. Carequality/eHealth Exchange staff, in collaboration with DirectTrust, will reach out to individual customers to help them through the transition process. The full implementation of this transition will be complete by December of 2021. 
IMPORTANT! 
While the Pilot kick-off in March of 2021 will only include a small number of Implementers/Participants, as the Certificate Authorities issue these new certificates, our entire community will need to make changes to their Trust-Stores to allow these new certificates to be trusted within the Carequality/eHealth Exchange ecosystem. The goal is to have all Implementers/Participants update their Trust-Stores NO LATER THAN MARCH 1ST, 2021. Our team will begin the outreach to all organizations to provide support as needed during this transition.
