COVID-19 Certificates for Everyone

  • TYPE: Keynote DATE: Thursday, August 06, 2020 TIME: 12:50-13:10

Working with the NHS, we are connecting our verifiable credentials infrastructure to its COVID-19 tests database so that we will be able to issue COVID-19 verifiable credentials to people in real time. Our unique design provides selective disclosure and conformance to GDPR for both the issuer (the NHS) and the verifier (e.g. a restaurant or a care home), without the need for a blockchain, revocation infrastructure or zero knowledge proofs. We will describe the architecture of our system, provide screen shots of the mobile phone interfaces, and describe the user trials we are shortly to carry out with care homes in Kent during the next few months.

Key takeaways:

- see how verifiable credentials can help in the fight against COVID-19
- see how little additional infrastructure you need in order to implement SSI today
- see how easy verifiable credentials are to use by ordinary people
