JAdam - I said one international travel passport covid app. Not one covid passport app for everything.
In my view, one app will become the accepted international travel app used throughout the world by airlines and countries. There are already over 10 in development or being tested, many with similar blockchain security as CTEA:-
As regards a domestic (UK) vaccine passport app, that is a totally different field to an international travel app. Despite what you say, the current NHS app (NOT the NHS track and trace app) is already being developed to be the one that everyone will have to use if they want to use it:-
It makes sense for there to be one domestic app - if you want to go to a music festival one weekend and a football match the next, you don't want to be using two apps. And in any case, the confidentiality of your NHS medical records (including that you have had the vaccine) will mean that it will only be linked to one secure app. Sorry to disappoint you, but that one app will not be CTEA's.
Oh and finally, how much clout do you think the recommendation may be in the world when the country that has done the best in the world on population vaccine, gives their recommendation. I would suggest that with CTEA residing on the policy board, their view will not just be highly accepted, but will they will be considered as the expert witness is considered within a court room.
I should just add to the below that if you were waiting for one internationally accepted app, then you would never have one, how many countries have the ability to produce an app and how many arguments would there be, 'its my one, no its my one, no its my one etc.' Europe can't agree on anything let alone the world!
What's important is not the app per se, but the security within it so that anyone accessing and looking at the results, know those results can be trusted. CTEA's app is verified in the field, is in current use, covers world wide standards of ISO 27001, security in blockchain and European rules on GDPR. Its not just in the running, its in the lead....
Mitch you sound a little desperate mate, you talk as if you ARE the authority, but instead you give what is in effect an opinion, then you agree with yourself then you portray as if that is the world conclusion. Ridiculous, lets just give one example, your comment below;
"There will only be one official international vaccine app as it will need to be accepted by different countries and different aurlines throughout a passengers's journey (if they have connecting flights)."
Wrong, the above is your opinion, it may well be logical but is an opinion only, it is NOT fact and indeed, there are many examples around the world where people use different apps to do the same thing, importance is interoperability and data sharing capability.
"Domestically, the NHS app is in the process of being adapted as a vaccine passport app."
Again wrong, it is not in the process of being adapted, it was a suggestion that it might be looked at and at this time they were looking into what would be required to be changed if it were to be further considered. No development work has started.
You make lots of comments as if fact, but they are not - thank god not everyone just believes things on face value.
We don’t know but it’s a big role they have been asked to play...
“Catenae will participate in a series of consultations with key stakeholders over the next 6 months, contributing from the perspective of a future identity service provider.”
The thing with the CTEA is size can be an advantage. You would want a sovereign app, not a European app or an airline app. You would want one where you control the release of personally digital data. That is what they are looking at. Not just a digital air ticket with a test stamp. This is much more than that.
CTEA have a blockchain ecosystem in place. It can be used to trial this sort of thing starting with a few hundred ID’s, moving on to thousands and then more data sources. That is not the service you are likely to get from an IATA app which is bespoke and narrow compared to what the government is thinking.
Furthermore, to be involved in the design as a future perspective service provide increases the likelihood of picking up contracts. They would also be paid for services.
Yes. My view is that the CTEA app will never be chosen over the bigger ones.
The IATA international vaccine app is already being trialled by several major international airlines. Can you really see, say, the USA govermnet choosing to accept the CTEA app over the IATA international air travel association app?
There will only be one official international vaccine app as it will need to be accepted by different countries and different aurlines throughout a passengers's journey (if they have connecting flights).
Domestically, the NHS app is in the process of being adapted as a vaccine passport app. The NHS holds your medical ID already. Why trust that sensitive info to a third party? Boris would be crucified if he did.
And, from someone who has been monitoring CTEA for 3-4 years, today's warrant "mistake" is typical of how CTEA operate.
Draw your own conclusions from the above. Like everyone who sees through this company, I fully expect to be called a deramper, a shorter, or just plain dumb.
CTEA are doing testing also with the JV. I don't personally think CTEA will be doing international covid passports. I think the system will be used for doing testing and passport ID etc for tests at football game events and workplaces as lockdown eases.
What is more interesting is the bigger picture of Drivers Licence, Passport, ID documents, health records etc etc. Read the link above. Digital ID will be law at the end of this review. In 6 months, CTEA's business plan could well be future proofed due to law. Seriously good opportunity right now.
@Mitch, you may be right - are you implying that what CTEA have is simply never going to fly (of interest to Govt etc, to feed ideas from, but this will ultimately never go to a (single) commercial provider for the solution. I'd say that's right. The IP may be of interest/value, but no monopoly will go to one company. IMO.
"Think this will move now with all COVID passport news around, are there other companies doing the COVID passport buddy"
Yes, the IATA app is already being tested by major airlines and will be the one approved by all international governments for air travel. There will only be one approved as it has to be accepted by every country worldwide.
The NHS app is being expanded to cover domestic covid passports (festivals etc), and that will be the one the UK government approves.
