Cuban UCI works on creating Covid-19 digital passport

Havana, May 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's University of Computer Sciences (UCI) is working in the creation of the Covid-19 Digital Passport based on three fundamental solutions, local press informed on Wednesday.

Allan Pierra, director of the Technology Support Center at UCI, explained that the experts have studied different versions of that passport used around the world and this project is currently in a testing phase.

This passport uses the QR code, a way to save information, in which the encrypted data of every person will include a signature authorized and recognized by the World Health Organization.

The objective, stressed Pierra, is that any Cuban citizen could have that digital passport in his/her mobile phone, which follows international standards.

The Cuban Ministry of Public Health will only provide the information, which can be read anywhere globally, Pierra said, quoted by Granma newspaper.

We have developed three fundamental computer solutions, said Pierra, who explained that there will be a web page where the user can enter vaccination data and the digital passport is generated.

The second solution is verification. This step will tell the user what information that QR code stores and if it was generated with a valid signature, to then give way to the Passport Wallet, the UCI specialist stated.

This third moment, concluded Pierra, will allow to see the information not only from the user, but also from other people in the family, and it can be shown when requested.
