Feature Description

LEADTOOLS includes comprehensive DICOM security and encryption features for .NET (C# & VB), C/C++, WinRT, iOS, OS X, Java, and web developers. With full support for part 15 of the DICOM specification, developers can encrypt sensitive data sent between DICOM nodes, using the TLS and ISCL secure transport connection profiles. LEADTOOLS DICOM Security eliminates the need of a VPN (virtual private network) for secure communication to comply with HIPAA regulations.

HIPAA Privacy and Security requires guarding data integrity, confidentiality, and availability for any application that maintains or transmits individual health data. LEADTOOLS DICOM Security allows for a quick, proven, and complete implementation of security functions that will ensure an application connected to the Internet will be HIPAA compliant. Using LEADTOOLS DICOM Security for efficient 128-bit encryption, addresses three areas of risk: computer/entity authentication, confidentiality, and data integrity.

TLS Connection Profile

Area at Risk

LEADTOOLS Medical Security Solution

Computer/Entity Authentication

RSA Based Certificates

Confidentiality

DES Encryption & 3DES Encryption

Data Integrity

Secure Hash Algorithm Cipher Suite Negotiation

ISCL Connection Profile
