    The Dutch "Policy Authority PKIoverheid" is going to replace about 3000 PKI certificates in the Healthcare, so-called UZI-certificates.
    It is related to a much broader PKI certificates problem in the Netherlands where certficates were issued with 63-bits serial numbers where it should have been 64-bits.


    Article in Dutch at security.nl :
    https://www.security.nl/posting/623214/Logius laat 3_000 UZI-certificaten in zorgsector vervangen

    Official Logius site about it, in Dutch:
    https://www.logius.nl/actueel/update-uitgifte-servercertificaten

    Logius is saying that the international community has been informed.

    Notes:
    1. The dutch word "overheid" means "government".
    2. UZI stands for "Unieke Zorgverlener Identificatie" which means "Unique Healthcare Provider Identification", see https://www.uziregister.nl/english
    3. Logius is the digital government service of the Netherlands Ministry of the Interior.
    4. At the moment I can't find English articles about it; sorry.

    To protect their networks and bottom lines, health insurers don’t aggressively pursue widespread fraud, making it easy for scammers
