How does a digital health pass work?
Similar to a physical credential (e.g. drivers license), a Verifiable Credential is an issued certificate containing health information (e.g. Covid-19 test results) about an individual. The unique value of Verifiable Credentials is that they are digitally native and cryptographically secure. This makes them a privacy-preserving alternative to other types of credentials.
An issuing organization (test center, hospital etc.) generates a digital verifiable credential and sends it to the individual. These may include test results, temperature checks, health surveys, contact tracing or vaccination records.
The verifying organizations identify the requirements needed to enter a specific venue and check with the B.A.M Validator App the individual’s credentials and ticket to allow access.
