The Department of Health and Human Services launched the Obamacare website, Healthcare.gov, disregarding known security concerns, according to newly obtained documents from the watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Mitre Corporation, the testing contractor that evaluated Healthcare.gov, initially found there were security concerns surrounding the website.
“The documents reveal that Mitre recommended a ‘Denial Authorization to Operate’ in the month prior to Obamacare’s launch, noting that it could not adequately test the confidentiality and integrity of the system,” Judicial Watch said. “It said that complete end-to-end testing of the system never occurred. Mitre found that 11 ‘moderate’ security findings and 8 ‘low’ findings remained open as of September 19, 2013—12 days before the launch.”
Additionally, five days before the website was launched, an “Authorization to Operate” was not only unsigned but indicated the validation contractor was unable to test the system completely.
