A New HOPE (2022): "Proof of Vaccination Technology and Standards" (Download)
Saturday, July 23, 2022: 7:00 pm (Little Theatre): The technology and standards behind proof of vaccination credentials (PVCs) will be described. PVCs are implemented as human- and machine-readable documents, suitable for vaccination verification apps. The SMART Health Card standard, which is in use in the U.S. and Canada, will be introduced. Emphasis will include the data integrity and anti-fraud measures included in the technical design and workflow of PVC issuers. Some of these measures will be familiar to HOPE attendees, such as public key cryptography. The talk will also tell the story of how government and industry designed and implemented the PVC, along with the international cooperation that allowed for interoperability among jurisdictions.
