What are Verifiable Credentials?

Much like a physical credential (e.g., the cards in one's wallet), a Verifiable Credential (VC) is an issued assertion containing a set of claims about an individual or organization. However, the unique value of VCs is that they are digitally native and cryptographically secure, making them an excellent privacy-preserving alternative to other types of credentials if used responsibly.

Are Verifiable Credentials Tamper-Proof?

Verifiable credentials are tamper-evident, meaning a verifier can identify any changes to the information stored in the verifiable credential. In existing decentralized technology, tamper-evident data is one of the latest advancements where data security is concerned.

Are you affiliated with other organizations?

Apart from being a part of the Common Trust Network within the travel sector, comprising airlines, governments, issuance technology partners, and healthcare institutions, we are also proudly associated with Linux Foundation Public Health(LFPH), Good Health Pass (GHP), COVID-19 Credentials Initiatives (CCI), and ​​The Asia Travel and Technology Industry Association (ATTIA). For more information on our partnerships, click here.

What is the difference between a health test report without a verifiable credential and one with a verifiable health credential?

The current authentication of health reports without verifiable health credentials is inefficient. In addition, non-verifiable health reports can be easily doctored or falsified, with no means of accurately verifying it if done optically. On the other hand, health data stored as a verifiable health credential can be authenticated by technological solutions, and attempts to tamper with it can be easily identified.

Does health reports stored on my phone mean it is a digitally verifiable health credential?

No, digital health reports are not the same as digitally verifiable health credentials. Digital health reports refer to a digitized version of a health report such as PDFs, JPEGs, or even an HTML link. On the other hand, digitally verifiable health credentials are health data presented in the form of QR codes that sit within health reports of various formats that can be authenticated through digital verification solutions.
