When it comes to reopening borders and travelling again, we need to take care of aspects related to privacy and the safety of people, which are both priorities in these times. From VU we contribute to the protection of individuals through solutions that enable trusted identities, based on the idea of working in open and interoperable technologies. The GoodHealth Pass represents a strong initiative that encourages working for a more collaborative world post-COVID-19.
Yoti is a member of WEF Digital Identity Innovators, Future of Health and Future of Travel groups and is keenly participating in the Good Health Pass Collaborative, the Covid Credential Initiative (CCI), CommonPass – indeed all initiatives that help restore global travel and restart the global economy. Yoti is committed to working with governments and industry to help travel, tourism and society reopen safely using our credential management platform.
Our free digital identity app helps people securely store and share passport and health data while protecting their privacy. Anti-spoofing technology protects those sharing and receiving data, both online or in person. We will always strive for interoperability and to collaborate and ensure compliance with collaborative initiatives and international standards.
As a Self-Sovereign ID platform offering COVID-19 vaccination and test certification, ZAKA supports the WHO and this complementary initiative to establish global standards for certification technologies. We view this initiative as an essential part of the route back to a new normal, where public health and economic wellbeing are achieved while respective personal privacy.
As the world emerges from the pandemic, the need for cross-border harmonisation spanning the global travel ecosystem is abundantly clear and the Good Health Pass Collaborative is delivering mission critical work to make this happen. With each country adapting its own health-related travel protocols and policies, we are seeing different health documents, in different formats, written in different languages. What is needed is an open, inclusive and most crucially, interoperable framework that provides the technical guidelines necessary to unlock travel at scale. Verified health-bound identity data will be a critical piece to making this framework viable.
Enabling movement of peoples, within borders and across borders, is essential to kick-start economies. For this to happen, three key challenges must be addressed – accessibility (physical and digital certificates), fraud (curtailing the existing black market for test and vaccination certificates) and individual trust in the solution. The fundamental need of a vaccination certification solution, addressing these challenges and concerns, requires new thinking and strong technology vendor partnerships. Zebra Technologies are delighted to support the open, inclusive, cross sector initiative that the Good Health Pass Collaborative are spearheading.
