    Open source "vaccine passports:" Linux Foundation Public Health talks development, security, and digitally restoring trust

    The COVID-19 Credentials Initiative (CCI) - hosted by Linux Foundation Public Health (LFPH) - is working to standardize an approach to vaccination credentials.


    To control the spread of COVID-19, nations have implemented a variety of containment strategies including lockdowns, inbound travel restrictions, and more. In recent weeks, millions of people in the US have received a COVID-19 vaccine. As the vaccination rollout continues, some semblance of normality could return later in 2021.

    So-called vaccine passports, a person's proof of vaccination, could enable travel and entry into spaces in the months ahead. The COVID-19 Credentials Initiative (CCI) is hosted by Linux Foundation Public Health (LFPH) and is working with a number of partners to build these solutions and standardize an approach to vaccination credentials.
