KYC Digital Certificate Service for COVID-19 Testing

Hans Lombardo | April 2020

As the world finds itself in an unexpected and novel situation as a result of the current pandemic, there is much need for businesses, organizations and even social groups to determine whether individuals are COVID-19 free or not in order to mitigate risk to operations and to allow business to continue as much as humanly possible.

The difficult question is how to implement COVID-19 coronavirus screening and enable users with a clean bill of health to disseminate verified passes but at the same time maintain the privacy of individuals and ensure fraudulent passes are not being used.

Blockpass has a fast, efficient and private digital identity solution for onboarding individuals to a COVID-19 testing service, privately and securely. This will allow individuals to store, control and update their passed test credentials for dissemination to businesses, organizations, groups and events.

Blockpass COVID-19 testing verification process…

  • the COVID-19 testing service is run by an authorised clinic who does the test.
  • the clinic or organization doing the test can operate their service via the Blockpass KYC Connect dashboard.
  • the patient creates their digital identity profile via Blockpass’ gateway and then easily sends their digital identity profile to the clinic service, onboarding instantly – with the degree of identity document authentication and KYC verification that the clinic or testing customer requires.
  • the individual takes COVID-19 test.
  • the clinic will issue a COVID-19 certificate to the individual’s profile if they have taken the test and prove to be clear of infection.
  • the user can prove they have taken the test by forwarding on the digital certificate that is stored in their digital identity profile.
  • the user can update their COVID-19 certificate validity on a regular basis, by testing again and getting a new certificate issued.

This will not guarantee that individuals are immune to COVID-19 or are non-contagious, but it serves as a useful baseline for organizations that want to mitigate the risk level to their workforce or membership.
