TrustNet Pakistan develops digital vaccination verification platform


TrustNet Pakistan, the country’s only digital trust foundation, has begun work alongside many other global technology companies on a digital vaccination verification platform called CovidCreds. The initiative supports projects that use privacy-preserving verifiable credentials. TrustNet is working on a solution called Vaccify to provide verification that it’s safe for people to travel out of Pakistan. The system is expected to work via a mobile phone app that can digitally receive test results, which will be protected by blockchain and decentralised certificates that will be trusted both nationally and internationally. An Alpha release is expected by August 2020.
