The uNLock foundation and Fieldlab Events published they have carried out a successful pilot to allow for safe organisation of events by providing a wallet with verifiable Covid test results. The idea is that negative Covid-19 test results can be used to allow to access events where it is not possible to keep distance, such as concerts or sports events. In January 2021 uNLock and Fieldlab want to use this solution in real events, an important step in creating a safe and open society.

The solution developed makes it possible to link a Covid-19 test result to the identity of a person. This person stores this information in a personal data safe on his phone, created by using ReadID for identity verification. Subsequently, the test result with linked identity can easily be shown during the access control of the event. The digital test result can be validated in real time by the organiser for authenticity using the high-resolution photo obtained from the chip in the identity document through ReadID. With the uNLock solution, the visitor keeps control over his test and ID data and fraud with test results is prevented.

The video below (in Dutch) shows how the pilot on December 10th worked out.

The app that was used in the practical test was developed by the initiators behind the uNLock Foundation, including ReadID partner Rabobank. Rabobank integrated ReadID through their IDA app into the uNLock process.

The uNLock Foundation is an initiative of a number of Dutch public and private parties who are jointly working on a solution to share digital test results, when they become available, in a privacy-friendly and reliable manner.
