and KDL jointly announce an agreement in late July under which SICPA will secure COVID-19 test results using a cutting-edge Digital Security Seal technology, using its CERTUS myHealth Pass service.
This guarantees that health status cannot be faked and protects against fraud, the companies said.
In early August, KDL will roll out the secured certificates in the services it supplies to the sports industry in the Russian Federation and the CIS.
The program will, therefore, assure the latest tested health status of all sportsmen and staff in various sports.
“We are expecting that more than 100,000 COVID-19 tests will be delivered by KDL labs and secured by CERTUS by the end of 2020,” KDL CEO Yuri Leonov said.
CERTUS myHealth Pass provides proofs of test status in both digital and material form.
Data is revocable and thus always up-to-date.
It respects personal privacy concerns while providing incontrovertible assurances of health status to the sporting authorities.
The credential is authenticated by scanning a tamper-proof QR-code with a smartphone or a computer.
The verification is independent of the document issuer.
No personal or sensitive information is stored, either directly or encrypted, in any database or on the blockchain and no extra-infrastructure is required.
