Master Person Index R4

Authentication and authorization

Authentication

In order to access the api services for person information the client needs to authenticate using HelseID at the highest level. The client needs to use an enterprise certificate in order to get a valid token from HelseID. After authenticating, the client needs to present a valid token issued by HelseID along with the request. Details regarding this process will be described later. For more information regarding HelseID, see: https://www.nhn.no/helseid/.

Authorization

Authorization will be done after identity has been confirmed through authentication. Access to information elements will be given to clients that need access to perform their job. Authorization rules will be maintained on the platform exposing the Person information services.
