FAST Security Test Kit

Test Kit Version: 0.1.1
Maturity: Low

The FAST Security Test Kit is a work in progress collection of tests for the FAST Security IG v1.0.0. Currently, Inferno only tests the Discovery section of the specification, verifying the presence of metadata which represents server capabilities.

This test kit is open source and freely available for use or adoption by the health IT community including EHR vendors, health app developers, and testing labs. It is built using the Inferno Framework. The Inferno Framework is designed for reuse and aims to make it easier to build test kits for any FHIR-based data exchange.


These tests were initially developed in support of the September 2021 HL7® FHIR® Connectathon to test the Discovery section of the specification. Future versions of these tests may validate other requirements.

The test kit currently tests all required, optional, recommended, and conditional parameters of the server configuration, except for the optional community parameter.

See the test descriptions within the test kit for detail on the specific validations performed as part of testing these requirements.


The FAST Security Test Kit GitHub repository can be found here.

Providing Feedback and Reporting Issues

We welcome feedback on the tests, including but not limited to the following areas:

  • Validation logic, such as potential bugs, lax checks, and unexpected failures.
  • Requirements coverage, such as requirements that have been missed, tests that necessitate features that the IG does not require, or other issues with the interpretation of the IG’s requirements.
  • User experience, such as confusing or missing information in the test UI.

Please report any issues with this set of tests in the issues section of the repository.
