Cardea: verifiable credentials for health information go open source

As an incubator for innovation in air travel, Aruba has chosen to use verifiable digital credentials to manage entry requirements and health testing for travel to the island. This decentralized, open-source technology, which provides secure authentication while preserving traveler privacy, was developed by SITA and and donated to Linux Foundation Public Health as  Cardea. In this session, representatives from Aruba’s government, Indicio, and SITA will discuss why they chose a decentralized approach, how they created a trusted data ecosystem, and why the ability to verify personal data without having to check in with the source of that data will transform air travel, healthcare, and tourism

Drone Pilot Credentialing for Air Safety

Drone operations are estimated to bring €10bn/yr to the EU economy by 2035. A critical e-Government issue is the ability to fly drones in regulated airspace around airports. Unauthorised drone operations in the flightpath of passenger aircraft can endanger lives and cause huge financial loss for airport operators. Heathrow Airport has invested >£10M in security systems to track and destroy unauthorised drones. Digitising the entire drone flight approvals process will involve many steps, but the major one we are addressing is verifying pilot training credentials. SSI could radically improve this currently cumbersome and low-trust process. In an Innovate-UK grant funded project (Fly2Plan), we developed an SSI PoC for a drone pilot training company to issue training certificates as verifiable credentials to drone pilots, which can be verified by Heathrow Airport. In this talk we present our learnings and future work.
